Mental Health Awareness Month: NAMI El Paso talks about this month’s campaign, “Why Care?”

You can’t always tell that someone is not doing well based on their outwards appearance, and just because someone looks fine on the outside doesn’t mean they’re not in need of help.

May is Mental Health Awareness month. Many people across the borderland may not be aware of the FREE services NAMI, The National Alliance on Mental Health, offers to adults and children in our area.

NAMI El Paso provides advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental health conditions can build better lives.

NAMI El Paso hopes to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health in the Borderland through educational classes, presentations, advocacy, and support groups.

This months theme for Mental Health Awareness Month is “Why Care?”

The “WhyCare?” campaign is an opportunity to share the importance of care in our relationships to others, in mental health treatment and services and in support and education to millions of people, families, caregivers and loved ones affected by mental illness. Demonstrating how and why we care brings more to awareness by showing our actions and connections to others. Care has the power to make a life-changing impact on those affected by mental health conditions.”

They are asking people to share a video, photo, or post with the #ElPasoCares or #NAMIElPaso hashtag and tag NAMI El Paso!
