May Is Mental Health Awareness Month in Fishers

What is mental health? According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website, “Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act, and helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices.”
