Important Mental Health Dates

Guest Author - Rayna H. Battle

January 2015
Mental Wellness Month
What you can do: Mention mental wellness in your everyday conversations, donate to the advocacy group of your choice, or make an effort to increase your personal awareness of those who struggle with mental illness.


February 2015
Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month
What you can do: Teen dating violence seems to increase every year and with it, the stigma and resulting depression that victims often struggle with. Being a supportive parent, friend, teacher or sibling can make an enormously positive difference in the life of a depressed teen.

February 9 - 15
Random Acts of Kindness Week
What you can do: Doing something kind for someone can not only be beneficial for them, but it can encourage you too! Whether holding a door open for a stranger or sending a card to a friend, try a few small kindnesses this week.

February 23 - March 1
National Eating Disorders Awareness Week
What you can do: Those struggling with an eating disorder often also struggle with resulting depression. Make an effort this week to be extra supportive to someone you know who is recovering from an eating disorder.

National Senior Independence Month


March 2015
National Nutrition Month

March 2-9
National Sleep Awareness Week


My name is Rayna Battle and I suffer from Major Depression, Cyclothymia, and Generalized Anxiety. I am not a mental health professional.
