Mental Health Awareness Month here at the Jersey Shore

May 23, 2023 - comments

     May is Mental Health Awareness Month here at the Jersey Shore.

     During this month, medical experts remind us of the importance of self-care. Make an extra effort to focus on your physical health and mental well-being. Even small self-care steps can have a big impact on your life.

     The National Institute of Mental Health recommends:

  • Get regular exercise
  • Eat healthy, regular meals and stay hydrated
  • Make sleep a priority
  • Try a relaxing activity such as meditation
  • Set Goals
  • Practice gratitude
  • Stay connected with people

     Living in and around the Jersey Shore offers us a great opportunity to exercise at our beautiful beaches and parks. Perhaps, you can meet up with family or friends at one of our many local restaurants. Self-care can make all the difference.

     However, if you are experiencing a mental health crisis, call the Mental Health Crisis National Lifeline at 988, or visit

     You will be connected to a trained mental health counselor.
