May is Mental Health Awareness Month

  May is Mental Health Awareness Month and I would like to post events being held to celebrate it from across Pennsylvania here on Pennsylvania Mental Health Issues.  If it is something that is open to the public, an event of any size big or small or anything in between.  I only ask is that the information you submit to be posted here include ….

  • Date and time
  • Location
  • Pre-registration is needed
  • An email, phone number, or website address where folks can get more information if this is available

If you would rather send me a write up of an event after it has happened that would be great as well, because what you or your group does this year might inspire another group to do something next year.

For writeups, please include …

  • Name of the person, group or organization that held the event
  • location
  • who was invited
  • what kind of turn out there was for the event
  • Special guests that spoke during the event, if any
  • If you are interested in networking with other groups to share ideas, contact information such as an email address, or business phone number or mailing address.
