Mental health is wealth and it is to encourage individuals to prioritize their own mental well-being

It is dedicated to promoting mental health. The stigma around mental health and treatment has long existed, even though this has started to change. Still, people hesitate to seek help or even talk about it with their loved ones for fear of being judged and facing unnecessary backlash.

It is a time to spread awareness about the prevalence of mental illness and to share resources and information about mental health. Many organizations also use social media to promote mental health awareness, using hashtags like #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth and #BreakTheStigma.

The main aim of Mental Health Awareness Month is to provide an opportunity to promote greater understanding and support for mental health, and to encourage individuals to prioritize their own mental well-being.
