Family Resources: May is Mental Health Awareness Month
DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - May is Mental Health Awareness Month, established to show the importance of mental wellness in our lives.
Carmen Galvin, Director of Care Coordination at Family Resources discusses the importance of prioritizing your mental health, the benefits of prioritizing mental health and how to create positive mental health habits.
Important update: Prior to Monday’s live interview, it was indicated that “poor mental health puts one at an increased risk of committing violent crimes...” Family Resources has since corrected that inaccuracy saying, “People with mental health issues are at a higher risk of victimization, but not at a higher risk of committing a crime. People who have been victimized are at a higher risk of mental health issues as well, but again, not at a higher risk of committing a crime.”
