President Issues Proclamation on 2019 National Mental Health Awareness Month

May 4, 2019

ANCOR is sharing this proclamation by President Trump because some of our members assist people with mental health challenges and intellectual / developmental disabilities.

As shared by the Executive Office of the President:

“This month, and throughout the year, let us work together to understand the importance of mental health. Let us recommit to making every effort to provide Americans suffering from mental illnesses with the care they need. Mental health is not just an individual issue, but a national issue. The mental health of our citizens is critical to our Nation's prosperity. Together, by focusing on and understanding these issues, we can reduce the effects of mental illnesses on our communities and enable all Americans to live healthy and productive lives.”

The full proclamation is available online.
