Mental Health Makes A Difference (Community Recognition)

Mental health makes a difference in how we think, feel and act as we live our lives. Mental health makes a difference in how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices. Mental health makes a difference in our overall health and well-being at every stage of life—from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Research is making it more and more evident that there are few aspects of our lives that are not impacted by our mental health. Whether it is on the job, in our homes or in extracurricular activities, our mental health has a significant influence on how we experience the world. 

This being the case, there are many people in our community from all walks of life, from leaders and decision makers to everyday folks, who are doing remarkable and inspiring things to encourage total health—including mental health.

Mental Health America of Greater Houston's, "Mental Health Makes a Difference" community recognition program highlights several dedicated, yet often under-recognized individuals and organizations who are making a difference in the mental health and wellness of people young and old in our community.
