Toolkits & Resources for Mental Health & Substance Use Topics
April 30, 2020

May is Mental Health Month every year – but our work is year round, day in and day out, working to eliminate the stigma against people living with mental health and substance use disorders. We are encouraged to see more people, more communities, and more industries engaged in the conversation around mental health and substance use. It is only through conversation that we can break down the barriers and begin to seek the care that we deserve and need.

Below is a host of toolkits and resources curated by The Kennedy Forum in our never-ending efforts to advance the conversation and change the system.
