May is Mental Health Awareness Month. As a member of the San Mateo County Commission on Disabilities, the San Mateo County Mental Health and Substance Abuse Recovery Commission (MHSARC), and the Board of NAMI San Mateo County, as well as a mom of a child with a psychiatric disability, I am always focused on raising awareness of mental health & mental illness resources and supports. There are a number of events in our community this month to raise awareness and to connect our community to a vast array of resources. If you would like more information about what to do in a mental health crisis, how to get connected with mental health or psychiatric services, or how to meet parents or peers with experience navigating the systems in San Mateo County -- including schools, BHRS, and medical facilities, please feel free to contact me or find more info at: San Mateo County Health, NAMI San Mateo County, Star Vista -- some of our key mental health organizations and resources in San Mateo County.
