Mental Health Awareness Month was initially envisioned by Mental Health America and for over 65 years, Mental Health America (MHA) has continued to observe May as Mental Health Awareness Month. Each year Mental Health America and their affiliates (such as the National Alliance on Mental Illness, NAMI) reach millions of people through local events, such as screenings, and through the media. The specific message varies depending on the organization and the year, but all revolve around bringing awareness to the issues around mental health.
