The COVID-19 pandemic intensified the stresses in many of our lives, and made some people less likely to seek clinical mental health support. This Mental Health Month, the MHS is sharing stories of how members of the military community boost their own mental health and resilience, and emphasizing the value of evidence-based treatments with mental health professionals. Both approaches can make real improvements in your mental health and quality of life.
