Mental Health is Essential Health – Thank You To Our Mental Health and Recovery Heroes!

May is Mental Health Awareness month.  As such, the Ohio Council is committed to recognizing and thanking the behavioral health workforce - our most valued asset!  We have worked with a small group of member organizations to help us design this workforce recognition campaign and a short 60 second video that recognizes our incredible, dedicated, and passionate behavioral health workforce.  The theme chosen is, "Mental Health is Essential Health" and we recognize our workforce as #MentalHealthHeroes and #RecoveryHeroes.  

The short video highlights the diversity of the essential mental health and addiction professionals working across our state.  Our recovery and mental health heroes!  This video of people showing up every day to provide the critical work done, says say thank-you and puts a face to our workforce.  We encourage you to view the video - share it with your staff and be inspired!    

MH is Essential Health  - Workforce Recognition Video 

The video message includes:  

"In May, we recognize Mental Health is Essential Health.  

Every day, in every community across Ohio mental health and recovery professionals don their capes, and now their masks to provide healing, hope, recovery and support.  

You are mental health and recovery heroes!  

You are essential - kind - compassionate - committed. 

We are grateful for your caring and service.  

Thank you!"   

MH and RECOVERY HERO Challenge:  The Ohio Council challenges every organization to use the remaining days of MH Awareness Month to recognize the HEROs you employ!  You are encouraged to use the video above or use if for inspiration!  We have provided access to the two graphics used in the video and a "I am selfie sign" that your organization may use to create your own social media posts, selfie video, or other employee recognition.  We've included links to the individual documents below as well as the Google Drive with all the resources.   Have fun!  Be Creative!
