May is Mental Health Month – Be Kind to Your Mind

May is Mental Health Awareness Month[1]

Kenosha County residents are encouraged to Be Kind to Your Mind by attending a series of free virtual presentations celebrating mental health month in May.

We are facing unprecedented times and want to focus on helping improve your mental health. Many people are feeling anxious, stressed, depressed and lonely. You are not alone.

“It’s important to take care of our physical health during the Stay at Home Order to help protect ourselves from COVID-19,” said Kari Foss, Kenosha County Behavioral Health Manager. “Our mental health is also important, not only during this time, but every day.”
