May is mental health awareness month, and although dedicating a specific month to mental health is a great way to build awareness and create conversation on the topic, there’s 11 other months of the year where men are struggling every day.Mental health has no time constraints, gender constraints, ethnicity constraint, or race constraints. It can happen to anyone and there needs to be community and resources to turn to when battling against mental health. You know when it comes to support and building a community of accountability, tethr is here for you. Opening up the conversation and acknowledging struggle is the first step to healing and overcoming it. With that, tethr encourages you to use the resources below provided from our friends at @soyouwanttalkabout to start your healing! Not only in May, but any day you need that extra help….
