Since the start of the pandemic, mental health challenges have dramatically increased across our society, as we all have faced social isolation, changing pressures of family, school and social lives, changes in services and community resources, and changes in activities, to name a few. Also, many of us have had direct encounters with COVID-19, through experiencing the illness ourselves or the loss of a loved one.
The need for mental health awareness and support is at an all-time high. With the month of May being national Mental Health Awareness Month, we wanted to share with you some important resources and encourage you to seek support if you are experiencing mental health challenges.
For more information and support we encourage you to contact the following resources directly:
- Community Mental Health in Washtenaw, Livingston and Monroecounties
- NAMI or the National Alliance on Mental Illness in Washtenaw and Monroe and Livingston counties
- The Women’s Center of Southeast Michigan
Additionally, many of our programs are designed to provide support, guidance and an opportunity to connect with others generally. We encourage you to consider joining us for one of our activities or contact our office to find the service or program that’s right for you.
