Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month (MHAM) is happening all throughout May in San Mateo County! MHAM is one of the best times of the year where we can increase awareness and inspire action to reduce stigma against those with mental health and substance use conditions.

This year, San Mateo County Libraries and Peninsula Library System partnered with the Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS) department along with other local agencies, community colleges, and support organizations. Together, we are hosting over 40 MHAM events, including informational workshops, wellness activities, film screenings, speaker panels, artistic performances, open mics, and more.
