Hi there,
   I don't know about you, but I'm so glad it's finally spring! We're finally moving out of the dark, cold winter months when I'm hit by Seasonal Affective Disorder (it gets me every year). But I have a plan to stay on top of my mental health for the present and the long-term, and hope to have a better chance of staying even keel.
   Maintaining good mental health isn't easy for everyone, and it's just as important as physical health since the two are closely related. At US Health Corps, we are always looking for ways to boost whole-body health, and we do this by providing valuable resources that give people the opportunity to live life to its fullest.

   Hi, October 2-8 is Mental Illness Awareness week, and with about 20% of American adults and youth experiencing a mental illness every year, it has perhaps never been more important.
   A vital step in improving these numbers is eliminating the stigma that often accompanies a mental illness diagnosis. Just as we cheer those battling diseases like cancer, we should offer the same support to those with a mental health condition. My team at USHealthCorps recently put together a packet of online resources to promote better understanding and support of this critical issue, and we hope you'll consider sharing it with your audience.
