The new year marks a fresh start for many, including setting goals for the upcoming year. While resolutions often center around physical health, we believe that incorporating mental wellness into your New Year’s resolutions is critical.
That’s why we’ll be focusing on building healthy habits for the new year during #BeTheDifference this January. Here’s how you can get involved this month:
- Join our chat. On Thursday, January 18, we’re hosting a #BeTheDifference Twitter chat on how to incorporate mental health into your New Year’s resolutions. To join and share your strategies and goals for the year ahead, follow @MHFirstAidUSA on Twitter and use the hashtag #BeTheDifference in your responses.
- Read the blog. We’ll be writing about ways to refocus on your mental health all year on the Mental Health First Aid blog. Read up and share with your networks!
- Share your stories. As always, we’re looking for stories from our community about how Mental Health First Aid has impacted your life or someone else’s life. If you have a story to share, reach out to Erica Hoffman at EricaH@TheNationalCouncil.org for a chance to be featured on the blog.
Thank you all for continuing to work toward healthier, safer communities for people facing mental health and addiction challenges in the new year and beyond.
