PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH

During Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the Florida Department of Children and Families celebrates the more than 300,000 Floridians who got help this year to improve their mental health. The attached radio PSA from Rob Siedlecki, Assistance Secretary of Substance Abuse and Mental Health, offers resources and reminds people suffering with mental illnesses that they are not alone.

Thank you for your assistance in spreading the word about mental health services and breaking the stigmas associated with mental illnesses.
