May: Recognition and Respect
This month we recognize the service of people who died serving in the military, as well as the loving generosity of mothers. In addition, we respect the unique perspective and needs of people who have mental illness. It is also a month to put some focus on learning more about people who are Asian or from the Pacific Islands.
- Mental Health Awareness Month - Learn about different types of mental illness and spread the word that mental health is as important as physical health. We raise awareness about the limitations of people who are neuro-diverse as well as how society can show grace and respect.
- Mother’s Day: Advocate for children around the world by raising awareness of the needs of mothers and children.
- Memorial Day: Honor this holiday by recognizing the role of soldiers. Teach the role of patriotism and encourage youth to volunteer and serve locally to benefit their community and country.
- Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month - Through literature and discussion, we build awareness of the culture and contributions of Asian and Pacific Islander people.
