Mental Health Awareness Month is in May and Memorial Hospital wants you to be aware of the resources that are available for you, should you need help. Darren Buttz, TMH Director of Community Health, and Caitlin Deady, Supervisor with Memorial Health, spoke of the many resources they have available. One of the initiatives that Buttz says TMH has announced is “It’s OK to not be OK.”
Deady says that when there is a sign of problems, talking to your primary care physician can be the first step.
One of the best places to start, Deady says, is through Memorial Health. She encourages you to be aware of the signs and symptoms of a mental health issue.
There are many resources available for various industries, such as veterans, first responders, and farmers.
