How can your library help bring awareness to mental health this week?

  • Make a LibGuide or pathfinder on a mental health issue. Here’s a Mental Health Resource LibGuide that I made in grad schoool.
  • Create a window/table display with books on mental health issues and information on local resources.
  • Promote events happening in your community.
  • Bring a guest speaker into your library to talk about mental health (dietitian, counselor, employee of local mental health association etc.)
  • Read ALA’s Tip Sheet and articles, such as this one, to better inform yourself.
  • Learn about mental health in the workplace.

Any other ideas?
