Mental Health Content Is In Demand

Sponsorship Opportunities

If the 400% increase in mental health screenings by Kentuckians in 2020 is any indication, mental wellness is a hot topic. Our phone lines, emails, and social media channels are also showing a significant increase in the need for mental wellness discussions and information across the Commonwealth. That’s why we chose this year’s local Mental Health Month theme of “It’s Time to Talk About It.”

 

It’s time to talk about what? A little bit of everything affecting the mental health of Kentuckians. Handling emotions. Dealing with stress. Having difficult conversations. The high rates of burnout in certain professions. The need to tackle cultural problems like toxic masculinity and the structural ones like racism. Accessing mental health resources. Addressing health inequities. Suicide. Addiction. Literally anything to do with mental wellness, we’re going to cover.

 

Become a corporate sponsor of our efforts. Pick the level that is right for you, and help us to keep mental wellness top of mind for Kentuckians.

B4Stage4 Supporter $5,000

Mental illness is the only kind of disease that we frequently do not treat at the first signs or symptoms. Almost half of Kentuckians with a diagnosable mental illness will never actually receive treatment.  It’s time we changed that.

Want More Information?

Mental Illnesses are brain-based conditions that affect thinking, emotions, and behaviors. Since we all have brains – having some kind of mental health problem during your life is really common. No matter what kind of mental health problem someone is facing, it is always possible to get better. If you think you’re experiencing a mental illness, try to find any kind of support earlier than later. Like other illness, treating mental illnesses early can help you get better faster.

We welcome the opportunity to assist you! We are available via phone, text, and email most weekdays. Please call 859.684.7778 or email mhaky@mhaky.org if you have urgent questions that are not covered here at this time!
