May is Mental Health Awareness Month

People experiencing mental health conditions often face rejection, bullying and even discrimination. This can make their journey to recovery longer and more difficult. Stigma is when someone, or you yourself, view you in a negative way because you have a mental health condition. Some people describe stigma as shame that can be felt like a judgment from someone else or a feeling that is internal, something that confuses feeling bad with being bad

Navigating life with a mental health condition can be tough, and the isolation, blame, and secrecy that is often encouraged by stigma can create huge challenges to reaching out, getting the needed support and living well. Learning how to cope with stigma and how to avoid and address stigma are important for all of us.

This month, our AlamoWELL classes will focus on Mental Health. All Alamo Colleges District Employees are invited to attend.
