Mental Health Awareness Month

May is devoted to raising awareness for mental health. Many of us experience issues over the course of our lifetime, ranging from “feeling blue” to something more serious. No matter what is happening, it is important to know you do not have to face this alone. Today and every day, support is standing by for you and your family. Read on to learn more.

Understanding common mental health conditions

MONEY-COACH-asian-man-smiling-giving-thumbs-up-holding-credit-cardMental health conditions are more common than most people realize. And in times of extreme stress, even more people experience symptoms that affect their daily lives – which is normal and expected. Sometimes these symptoms go away when stress subsides, but sometimes they don’t. 

Learn more about common mental health conditions, and how to seek treatment for yourself or a loved one.

Beyond Well podcast


Podcasts are a great way to absorb new information – portable, time-efficient and entertaining. HealthyYou offers the Beyond Well Mental Health podcast to help you reclaim your balance and learn about topics like isolation, anxiety, or depression. They also explore the search for meaning and happiness, and ideas to reclaim balance in our lives. 

OEBB members can listen to it on the HealthyYou portal here.

Mental health resource: Find your words

girl-teen-smiling-reaching-her-hand-to-helpOffering support and asking for help are more important than ever. Mental health matters, and we should talk about it — just like we talk about physical health. 

Find Your Words offers support for these conversations, as well as information about available resources and links to peer support and professional care. Learn more.

Tips for keeping a healthy mindset

happy-black-man-breathing-deeply-fresh-air-in-a-park.jpgWe all have ups and downs–so treating yourself with kindness and acceptance is key for reaching your goals. Start prioritizing your well-being with these two tips:

  1. Celebrate you! Research shows that being tough on yourself doesn't work. Instead, show some self-love by writing down three things about yourself that you're grateful for, today.

  2. Treat yourself like a friend. When you notice you're being critical of yourself, give that self-talk a time-out and consider how you'd react if your friend was speaking about themselves in this way. You'll likely change your tune!
Need additional support? WW offers 5-Minute Coaching sessions designed to help you manage stress, overcome setbacks and find success. Anyone age 18 and older enrolled in an OEBB medical plan can sign up at NO COST to you. Learn more.
