May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Good mental health means that we can find joy and positively deal with life's inevitable challenges. It is a time to assess the balance we have in our lives, despite today's dramatic and unexpected stressors. This year has brought so much more than the "normal stresses of life". The Middle Tennessee area has been impacted by tornados, COVID-19, powerful storms, and power outages. Paying attention to our positive emotional well-being is more important now than ever.
