May is national Mental Health Awareness Month, and at Tanager, we believe it is our duty to provide everyone the opportunity to increase their personal awareness of  mental health, gain knowledge to become an advocate for mental health change, and try out new activities or practices that can help increase personal mental wellbeing. 

This year, we are celebrating with the theme Nourish to Flourish Your Mind. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to know where to start when you want to improve mental wellness, but it doesn’t have to be. By Nourishing yourself daily and supporting those around you to engage in regular practices of self-care, you can Flourish! Explore this page to see all the ways you can join Tanager this May to celebrate Mental Health Month and learn to Nourish to Flourish Your Mind every month.
