PRIDE AND MENTAL HEALTH
Pride Month is a time for LGBTQ+ folks to gather and celebrate their freedom to live authentically. The LGBTQ+ community deserves affirmed, safe, supported, joyful, and mentally healthy lives.
Anti-trans legislation, hate-based crimes, and discrimination shouldn't overshadow Pride, but they can't be ignored. We hope those struggling with their identity or living in unsupportive environments find these resources helpful to living a life of well-being and resilience.

MENTAL HEALTH MOMENT
TODAY’S MENTAL HEALTH MOMENT: RIDING THE WAVES OF EMOTIONAL HEALTH
Week One: May 1 - May 7
Often, emotions and mental health are thought of as the same — but they’re actually a bit different. Try to think of emotions like waves in an ocean and our mental health as the ocean itself. Seeing the waves as temporary ups and downs in our larger mental health may help us to feel more calm and centered. Check out Modern Health’s weekly podcast, The Reset, episode on Mindset & Emotions to take a moment in your day to ground yourself.
