National Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed annually each May to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and its impact on the health and well-being of everyone, including children, adults, families, and communities.

This year, President Joseph Biden issued a proclamation recognizing May 2022 as National Mental Health Awareness Month and called upon citizens, government agencies, private businesses, non-profit organizations, and other groups to join in activities and take action to strengthen the mental health of all communities across the Nation.

There are resources available for Georgia State faculty, staff, retirees, and eligible dependents to help manage stress and take care of your mental health during these challenging times.   For more information on GSU/USG benefits and resources, call EDWS at 404-413-3342, or email
