May is "Mental Health Awareness" Month

Good Morning Norman Nation! 

May is “Mental Health Awareness” month.  

During this pandemic and while in quarantine our mental health is critical and vulnerable.  We need to pay as much attention to our mental health as we do our physical health. This is an ideal time to discuss mental health, how to seek help if needed, and how to live a mentally healthy life!

MENTAL HEALTH 

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Our mental health affects how we think, feel, learn and act. It also helps determine our self-esteem, how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. 

COUNSELING

If this pandemic and home learning has you feeling anxious, frustrated, angry or even happy...you are not alone! NormanAid Counselors care about your MENTAL HEALTH!

  • Talk to a counselor about how you are feeling, your mental health, or just a check in, by clicking here to sign up for an appointment. Our therapists are available Monday through Friday, 8am to 3pm
