May has been designated as Mental Health Awareness Month since 1949. This past year presented so many different challenges and obstacles that tested our strength and resiliency. The global pandemic forced us to cope with situations we never even imagined, and a lot of us struggled with our mental health as a result. Now, more than ever, we need to combat the stigma surrounding mental health concerns.
