May is Mental Health Matters Month

Saturday, May 23, 2015 — One in five of us will experience a mental health challenge in our lifetime and everyone needs to understand help is available, according to Lassen County Health and Social Services Director Melody Brawley.
    To help bring awareness about the offered tools and resources and to break the stigma, May has been designated as national Mental Health Awareness Month.
    According to Brawley, a mental health challenge is fairly common, but it’s something we don’t talk about because there is such a stigma to it.
    Some people think sex offenders and school shooters, but it’s not like that, according to Brawley.
