May is designated as National Mental Health Month. This year's theme is "Before Stage Four," in an effort to promote awareness of mental illness, symptoms of problems, how we can all help prevent larger mental health issues, as well as how we can treat our mental health as seriously as we treat our physical health. Follow our blog, TFI Talks, to learn more about how to live healthier lives and build strong family bonds, different types of therapy and how mental and physical health are related. #B4Stage4.
Join TFI for our first On the Table event, Identity: From Exception to Accepted, on May 10. We will be one of thousands of locations across the Chicagoland area hosting similar events where community residents from all ages and backgrounds come together to put real issues and solutions "on the table" and share their commitments to helping shape our collective future.
