About the event

 Mental health is wealth, especially during Mental Health Awareness Month, which is celebrated in May. 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. However, with 1 in 5 adults experiencing mental illness and 1 in 20 adults experiencing severe mental illness, it's crucial to break the stigma and foster open conversations.
