May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, with an emphasis on anxiety and depression throughout the week of May 5th -11th. The state of our nation’s mental health is truly a terrifying picture. “The need for resilience and happiness skills is immense,” says Renee Jain, Founder of GoZen. A fully animated, online program designed to help children combat anxiety, stress and prevent depression. As an active contributor to National Mental Health Awareness Month – GoZen, in partnership with sister company GoStrengths, is launching the #FightFear campaign set to start May 5th.
Renee is urging other organizations, schools, and the media to reach out and get involved. “This is a prevention plan. Instead of sticking a band aid on the mammoth of issues our children face: cyber bulling, growing rates of anxiety, depression and increasingly violent behavior – we’re going straight to the heart of the issue.”
