Advocates raise awareness for mental health

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - If you see green ribbons on fences, posts and trees in Headwaters Park, there is a reason.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and representatives with Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana are trying to get the message out.

Organizers stress that hope and recovery are possible.

And they say an educated community is a more-inclusive one.

"It's important to understand the impact of mental health, understand that there shouldn't be a stigma," said Audrey Mumma, with Mental Health America. "It's not shameful to struggle with your mental health. It's something that's very common. Help is available. People should seek help when they need it."

If you're looking for a place to start, Mental Health America can help guide you to the resources you need.

You can reach them at 260-422-6441.
