Join Arkansas Foodbank for Mental Health Action Day

First National ‘Mental Health Action Day’ to Drive People to Take a First Mental Health Action for Themselves and Others

After a year that tested us in many ways, personally and as a nation, it’s time we prioritize our emotional well-being, just like we care for our physical health. Taking these steps before we reach a moment of crisis is paramount, and that’s why Arkansas Foodbank is participating in Mental Health Action Day. As the first-ever of its kind, more than 800 leading brands, nonprofits, government agencies and cultural leaders have already added their name to invite friends and followers to take action on Thursday, May 20th.

When it comes to our own mental health, sometimes the hardest action we can take is the very first one; like reaching out for the first time to a friend, walking into the first support group meeting, finding a therapist or calling a support line. Join your friends at the Foodbank and consider taking action, whether for yourself, your loved ones, or to advocate for systemic changes in the community around you. We’ll plan to share resources and tools on our social media pages on May 20th that can offer help, whether that’s starting a meditation practice, learning how to support a friend, or advocating for change.
