From Rotary International

This year, we’re prioritizing projects that aim to support mental health. This effort is deeply personal to me. I know what it’s like to see someone close to me suffer in silence. I have also witnessed the power of personal connections, the value of discussing emotional and mental well-being, and the lifesaving impact of preventive care and treatment.

Research shows that performing acts of kindness is one of the most effective steps any of us can take to protect our well-being and make us more resilient to all the challenges we encounter in life. And by building peace within, we become more capable of bringing peace to the world. 

How can you take action? Download the Prioritizing Mental Health brochure to learn how you and your club can support mental health. Also consider connecting with the Rotary Action Group on Mental Health Initiatives.
