May is Mental Health Awareness Month – You Can Have a #RealConvo with Me. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is focusing their attention on having a #RealConvo about mental health. They learned through a recent Harris Poll that 89 percent of people believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. Despite this, many people don’t know how to have a conversation about it.

They may have wanted this done on May 16th, but this still can be done anytime!

  1. We all have mental health. Let’s have a #RealConvo about it!
  2. I lost my best friend to suicide. It’s so important to have a #RealConvo about mental health.
  3. If you’re struggling with your mental health, you can count on me to have a #RealConvo.

They hope you’ll lend your voice to this important campaign. By sharing this message, and encouraging others to do so, you will make an enormous impact.
