We're Big On Mental Health
Awareness In Neighborhoods
Welcome to BeeThe1ToHelpSomeone’s campaign, a unique initiative aimed at raising awareness and preventing suicide. Our message call for individuals to take responsibility for mental health and be the first to support someone who is struggling emotionally. We provide a range of accessible resources for individuals seeking help, from counseling referral service to Mental Health First Aid training.
We all have a vital role to erase the stigmas attached to mental illnesses.
Mental Illness Does Not Discriminate
It is important to recognize that occasional experiences of grief, stress, and sadness are a normal part of life. However, when these patterns or changes in thinking, feeling, or behavior become distressing and interfere with one's ability to function, it may indicate the need for help. Mental health conditions can affect anyone, regardless of age, income, race, or gender. They encompass a wide range of illnesses, including anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, and many others. Among these, depression and anxiety are the most common, impacting millions of Americans. It is crucial to understand that there is no single cause for mental illness; rather, a combination of factors such as genetics, environment, lifestyle, and life events can contribute to their development.

Mental Health First Aid is a proven and evidence-based educational tool that plays a crucial role in enhancing public knowledge about mental health. This comprehensive course equips individuals with the skills to identify signs of mental health issues and effectively support someone in crisis until professional help can be accessed or the crisis is resolved. At BeeThe1ToHelpSomeone, we prioritize a culture-sensitive approach to mental health support. Our "neighborhood-based approach" ensures that we provide resources that are sensitive to diverse communities, recognizing the impact of social determinants of health on individuals' well-being. By fostering culturally competent healthcare providers, we strive to improve diagnosis and outcomes, ultimately promoting care and recovery for all.
