May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Dear CCA Parents and Stakeholders:
Mental Health Month raises awareness of trauma and the impact it can have on the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of children, families, and communities. Mental Health Month was established in 1949 to increase awareness of the importance of mental health and wellness in Americans' lives, and to celebrate recovery from mental illness. Mental health is essential for a person's overall health. Prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can recover from mental disorders and live full and productive lives.
Over the past 20 years, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and others within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and across the Federal Government, the public health community, and the general public have made efforts to increase the importance of understanding both prevention and treatment of mental health problems. These efforts have significantly improved the outlook for those affected by mental illnesses.
There are several agencies in Southwest Detroit that provide mental health support including CHASS Clinic and Southwest Solutions. CHASS Clinic can be contacted by telephone at 313.849.3920 or by visiting their website at www.chasscenter.org. Southwest Solutions can be contacted at 313.841.98900 or visit their website at www.swsol.org. CHASS Clinic and Southwest Solutions have decades of experience in meeting the mental and physical health needs of the community.
Mental Health Month gives all of us a valuable opportunity to celebrate the tremendous strides this Nation has made in promoting mental health and increasing the public's knowledge that effective services and support are available.
P.S. Please do not forget to congratulate our 12th grade students who will be graduating later this month. Also, congratulations to our Kinder, 5th grade and 8th grade students who will be promoted to their next levels!
