HopeSpoke Inspires Healthy Futures Through Behavioral and Mental Health Services
HopeSpoke (www.hopespoke.org) is inspiring healthy futures for children and their families through comprehensive behavioral and mental health services. HopeSpoke also serves adults across the lifespan. HopeSpoke will celebrate Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, May 2-8, and the entire month of May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
“With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, did you know that caring for your mental health is a vital part of living a healthy, fulfilling life? Caring for your physical health is ingrained in us but not our mental health. That needs to change,” said HopeSpoke Executive Director Katie McLeese Stephenson, MSW.
During the pandemic, there have been additional stressors that we are facing and focusing on our mental health is more important than ever. There are a number of very simple ways that you can enhance your mental health and overall well-being. Ideas include: Get enough sleep each night; keep yourself hydrated with more water and less caffeine and drinks containing sugar; get outside daily; and complete some type of exercise for 30 minutes inside or outside. Some exercise is more fun than other exercise, but it all counts. Ideas include taking a walk, playing outside with your children, enjoying a bike ride, etc.
