Mental Health Spring Cleaning

Spring is here. As we watch the crocus poke through the ground and enjoy more and more daylight, it's a good time to recommit ourselves to our mental health care. Do some mental health spring cleaning. Identify a habit that prevents you from being your best. It could be the habit of criticizing others or negative self-talk. Whatever it is, commit yourself to being self-aware and to quickly replacing the behavior with a healthy alternative. Plan ahead and be ready.

There are many different ways that you can step in or make a difference if you see someone at risk.

A simple distraction can give the person at risk a chance to get to a safe place.
