May is Mental Health Awareness month! Last year in 2021, Moxie was proud to be in partnership with a coalition of more than 1,400 nonprofits, brands, government agencies, and influential leaders from 32 countries who came together to shift our mental health culture from awareness to action on the first Mental Health Action Day.
Moxie is once again participating for the second annual Mental Health Action Day on Thursday, May 19th. Mental health is health, and we encourage our staff, clients and partners to take action to empower yourselves, your loved ones, and our community to care for our mental health.
If you're unsure what mental health action may be best for you, we encourage you to visit this resource designed to suggest an action based on what you're currently feeling or experiencing.
Part of our action as a company this year is fostering Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in young children by launching a kickstarter to support a children's book entitled Be Kind to Yourself, which was written to help kids develop more self-love. Copies donated through the campaign will be given to schools, libraries, and nonprofits that serve children in Orange County in order to spread the important message of self-kindness throughout our community (and beyond). It will also come complete with a lesson plan for teachers to use in order to more easily integrate into their SEL curriculum.
You matter to us. Not just as our clients and vendors, but as people, too. Please remember to take care of your mental health today and every day.
