National Mental Health Professional's Day - May 20th

This petition had 634 supporters

Help create a National Mental Health Professional's Day, to happen every year on May 20th!

Mental health is a growing industry, yet somehow many still consider it to be a fairly unimportant component to our overall health care.  Thankfully, this is changing and the long-standing stigma surrounding mental health is finally breaking down.  With this change, we have begun to better recognize the many professionals who dedicate their lives and careers to the improvement of others; going through bachelor's and master's degrees, earning licensures and certifications, on non-profit salaries, while also often working numerous volunteer hours within their community.  It is truly amazing and important lives these professionals lead.  

We feel it's time we created a day dedicated to say 'thank you' to a group of professionals who so rarely receive the thanks and praise in their work they truly deserve.  

Each year on May 20th, communities and organizations will have the opportunity to celebrate and offer 'thanks' to these professionals for all the essential work they do!  This day serves as a valuable reminder that highlighting the importance of mental health professionals to an organization and the services they provide to the community is critical.  

It is our ultimate goal to have this day widely observed in many workplaces in the United States and other countries around the world.

Please join us and sign the petition to help make this day a reality! 

Thank you for your support!
