Mental Health Awareness Month
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. In recognition, SEWI wants to continue to bring awareness to the importance of mental health and destigmatize mental health illnesses. We recognize that millions of people are living with mental illness and we want to show our love and support.

The 3 onyx green beads in the middle represent important stages in the fight against mental health illnesses: Awareness, Treatment &
Don't want a bracelet? Consider a donation to SEWI to demonstrate your commitment to youth mental health in our communities.
