New Bedford Support Group & Events

May is Mental Health Awareness Month!

Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in May in the United States since 1949, reaching millions of people in the United States through the media, local events, and screenings. Mental Health Awareness Month began in the United States in 1949 by the Mental Health America organization.

Throughout the month of May, PIN will be hosting a series of events aimed at raising awareness of children’s mental health. Please see below for our Calendar of Events and additional information about each individual event, along with information about mental health awareness and the symbolism behind the green ribbon.
