Shine a Light on Mental Health Awareness With NACo’s Toolkit

Mental Health Awareness Month is your opportunity to shine a light on mental health awareness, services, and innovation, and advance behavioral health policy priorities with the toolkit.  

Join the National Association of Counties (NACo) and the National Association of County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability Directors in recognizing Mental Heath Awareness Month, May 2023, to highlight the county role in behavioral health.

Earlier this year, NACo launched a Commission on Mental Health and Wellbeing to address the ever-growing mental health crisis.  In May, NACo will release research on essential county perspectives on high-quality, accessible mental health services.

Access the toolkit to explore resources and submit a plan.  The toolkit includes a resolution template, sample letters to Congress, press release and social media templates and more.  NACo will be featuring county efforts large and small – submit your plan for Mental Health Awareness Month.
