Wear It Green Day

Wear Green For Mental Health

The color green and green ribbons serve as a reminder that mental health is a critical part of overall health and well-being for everyone. We hope that by starting the month of May with “Green Day for Mental Health” and continuing to wear green during the month of May, not only to recognize mental health awareness month, but to also show support by having conversations about mental health that will offer support and promote an inclusive society for all individual affected by mental illness.

Green/lime green is often associated with concepts like new life, renewal, and growth in nature. This symbolism is intended to represent the idea that people with mental health challenges can experience recovery, healing, and personal growth.
