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.

April is…

National Stress Awareness Month

National Stress Awareness Month draws attention to the negative impacts stress can have on your mental and physical well-being. Stress can manifest in a variety of ways, such as depression and anxiety, and can bring on physical symptoms like headache or sleeplessness or make existing conditions worse. This April, take time to learn about tools you can use to reduce stress in your life. Head to Healthy Minds Philly for resources and support for your mental health and well-being.

Every Kid Healthy Week April 22 – 26

Healthy kids are better prepared to learn and thrive. Every Kid Healthy Week spotlights the connection between nutrition, physical activity, mental health, and learning. Find daily activities here that you can do at home and join in the social media conversation with the hashtags #EveryKidHealthyWeek and #TakeAction4HealthyKids.

National Minority Health Month

From maternal mortality rates to reduced access to mental health care, minority populations in the U.S. continue to face disparities in health. National Minority Health Month is a time to raise awareness about these disparities and advance health equity. Healthy Minds Philly offers culturally and racially sensitive mental health resources so that people of all backgrounds can get the mental health care that suits their needs.
