May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Posted May 17, 2016 by Premier Disability Services, LLC® The month of May is Mental Health Awareness Month.  Throughout the month of May, organizations such as Mental Health America will promote awareness of mental illness through media, local events, and screenings.[1]

On Saturday, May 14, 2016, the staff of Premier will be participating in the 7th Annual Walk for Mental Wellness for Anoka County.  This is Premier’s second straight year sponsoring our employees for this event.  Mental Wellness Campaign for Anoka County is the organization that put the walk together.  This organization uses public relations to promote recovery from mental illness.

At Premier, we take great pride in the fact that our employees will use their time to support such as worthy cause.  Many of our clients suffer from some level of mental illness.  We are happy to be involved in an event that promotes mental health awareness and that educates the public on the challenges of living with these impairments.
