May 2023 is Mental Health Awareness Month in the county
The board of commissioners has proclaimed May 2023 as Mental Health Awareness Month.
Mental health impacts a person’s emotional, social, environmental, financial and overall well-being, with significant disparities among racially and ethnically diverse communities. Ramsey County commits to advocating for funding and support of mental health services at the state and federal level through partnerships and advocacy on behalf of communities which are essential to addressing mental health.
Commissioner Ortega read the proclamation with staff from Mental Health and Public Health offering remarks.
