Let's be #mindPHL together

A joint project of the City of Philadelphia and Independence Blue Cross, #mindPHL shares information about free mental health resources and programs.

May is:

Mental Health Awareness Month

The pandemic has caused us to be more isolated than ever and emphasized our need for support. But one silver lining is the increased awareness of mental health issues and lessened stigma around seeking help. This month is a great time to come “Together for Mental Health” and take advantage of the resources available to you. Visit HealthyMindsPhilly to take a behavioral health screening, join a support group, or share your own mental health story. #MHAM #Together4MH

Children’s Mental Health Acceptance Week (May 1-5)

Mental health issues do not only affect adults. According to the World Health Organization, around 20% of children and adolescents experience a mental health condition. Children’s Mental Health Acceptance Week, held each May during Mental Health Awareness month, emphasizes the importance of understanding the issues children and youth face and investing in the wellbeing of the next generation. Visit the National Federation of Families for resources and activities for kids and families this month.

National Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Month

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), which affects a person’s ability to regulate their emotions and thoughts, is one of the most misunderstood mental health conditions — but it’s more common than most people realize. Over 14 million Americans experience BPD, which can often be linked to a history of trauma. This month, take the opportunity to learn more about BPD to help reduce the stigma. The National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality is a great starting point, and Healthy Minds Philly provides trauma resources for those in need of help.
