May is Older Americans Month, Too

Older Adults Mental Health

For over 65 years, Mental Health America and our affiliates across the country have led the observance of May is Mental Health Month by reaching millions of people through the media, local events and screenings. We welcome other organizations to join us in spreading the word that mental health is something everyone should care about by using the May is Mental Health Month toolkit materials and conducting awareness activities. This year, we have partnered with the National Council on Aging and their My Medicare Matters program to feature materials on older adults during this time as well.
