Get Inspired during May is Mental Health Awareness Month

By Carl Clark, MD,
President & CEO of the WellPower

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and this year, the WellPower commemorates the month by sharing a few simple words to encourage someone to be the best they can be. We want you to “Get Inspired.”

Inspiration.  It comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes you have to search hard for inspiration and other times, it’s right there in front of you.  Inspiration is something that speaks to you, encourages you, pushes you to make a change, persevere, give more, step up or be compassionate or brave.

When I’ve needed inspiration, I often recall the words my mother told me, “Do not let how people feel about you stop you from doing what you want.”

These words have encouraged me to make big choices during my life and I often share them with friends who are struggling.

We asked community leaders and our partners to share their favorite inspirational quote as part of a campaign we’re calling “Get Inspired” during May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

All month long, we’ll post the inspirational quotes we collect on our website and in our social media efforts noting who submitted it. Inspirational quotes often garner the most likes on our Facebook page, and we hope you’ll find inspiration in words that have inspired others to persevere or succeed.  If you have a favorite quote you’d like to share, please post it to our Facebook page with the hasthtag #GetInspired.


May you find inspiration today and every day!
