May You Nurture Meaningful Connections
May is Mental Health Month. This year, it's more important than ever to find ways to nurture and sustain meaningful connections. So reach out to friends or family. Or looks for new ways to connect with colleagues in safe and appropriate ways. Because, just like your physical health, your mental and emotional health is an essential part of your overall wellness, deserving of your ongoing attention and care.

How are you feeling today?
As you navigate life's ups and downs, pay attention to your thoughts and feelings, your energy level, and your overall mood each day. Just starting your day by asking yourself, “How am I doing today?” gives you a moment to focus on you.
How can you feel better?
If you're having a tough time or just have some questions, talking to someone like a professional counselor, friend or loved one can make a big difference. A wealth of services and resources are also available through the MHealthy Thrive! program, Mental Health Counseling and Consultation Services (Michigan Medicine Office of Counseling & Workplace Resilience and Faculty and Staff Counseling and Consultation Office), and your U-M health plan.
