It's Mental Health Matters Month! Proudly wear lime green! Did you know lime green is the national color of mental health awareness? It can help start conversations with people who do not know about the mental health movement. Put on a support ribbon or a lime green neck tie. You can even decorate your backpack or workspace with lime green items! Small actions like these let others know that you are a mental health advocate who supports raising awareness and reducing stigma about mental health challenges. If you need talking points to get you started check these out:
1. I wear my lime green ribbon because I support mental health awareness and I believe EACH MIND MATTERS!
2. I wear my lime green in support of the millions of Californians affected by mental health challenges.
3. Someone dealing with a mental health challenge is not defined by their diagnosis: it's just one part of who they are.
Stay tuned for tips on how to start a conversation about mental health.
