May is Mental Health Month

The theme for Mental Health Month this year is “Where to Start. Mental Health in a Changing World”

The world is constantly changing – for better or for worse – and it can be overwhelming to deal with everything going on around you. While society is getting more comfortable discussing mental health, it can still be hard to know “Where to Start” when it comes to taking care of your own well-being.

This month we will focus on:

  • LEARN how modern life affects mental health with new resources to navigate our changing world.
  • ACT by building your coping toolbox so you can manage stress, difficult emotions, and challenging situations.
  • ADVOCATE to improve mental health for yourself, your friends and family, and your community.

For anyone struggling with the pressure of today’s world, feeling alone, or wondering if they can feel better, this is Where to Start.

One way Atlantic Packaging is going to “Get Started” is by showing our support and raising awareness for Mental Health.
Green Ribbons will be sent to each location and we encourage everyone to wear them to show your support.
AND on May 16th we will have a WEAR GREEN day.
