Mental Health America first celebrated Mental Health Month in May 1949 to “raise awareness of mental health conditions and mental wellness for all.” Since then, a strong focus on mental health advocacy, awareness, and education in May is tradition.
To keep with tradition, Professional Development Resources is offering 25% off the following online mental health continuing education courses during May:
- Anxiety Disorders – Overview
- Understanding the Biology of Mental Disorders
- Bipolar Disorder – Overview
- A Dissociative Identity Disorder Casebook
- Depressive Disorders – Overview
- The Grieving Self
- PTSD – What is It?
- Diagnosing ADHD in Adults

This year, Mental Health America is addressing these important issues through two themes:
Do More for 1 in 4 is a call to action to help the 1 in 4 American adults who live with a diagnosable, treatable mental health condition and the fact that they can go on to live full and productive lives. Download the Do More For 1in4 Toolkit.
The second theme, Healing Trauma’s Invisible Wounds, focuses on the impact of traumatic events on individuals and communities. It centers around asking the person-based question: “What happened to you?” Download the Healing Trauma’s Invisible Wounds Toolkit.
