The Month of May has been set aside as Mental Health Awareness month to help break stigma around mental health and educate/help people on Mental Health Issues. Mental Health Issues and need for care is not a sign of weak faith, it is your body showing that you need help. Never be afraid to seek help when it comes to your health. Our minister is not a mental health professional, but he will gladly lend and ear and help guide you to resources (that you can also find listed below). 

To show support for Mental Health Awareness Month, a green ribbon is worn. You can get a ribbon at FCC Missoula starting May 12 (Mothers Day and Mental Health Awareness Sunday)

Since 1990, the U.S. government has designated the month of May as Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, celebrating the achievements and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the United States. The month of May was chosen to mark the arrival of the first Japanese immigrant to the United States on May 7, 1843, as well as the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869.
