When you feel good, you’re more likely to do good in the world and at work. Make sure you’re able to set boundaries to help improve your work-from-home life.

The month of May is Mental Health Awareness. Nearly 1 in 5 adults in any given year suffer from mental illness, but only 40% receive treatment. Navigating life with a mental health condition can be difficult, and can include isolation, blame and secrecy. Learning how to cope is important. Hospitals and health systems play an important role in providing behavioral health care and helping patients find resources available in their community.

If you or someone you know needs help, do not hesitate to reach out to a local healthcare provider for recommendations.

Our words are powerful and should be handled with respect. Because they can impact others, choose yours wisely with these helpful tips.

    "My experience with Soldier’s Best Friend has been life changing. Coping with civilian life has become more manageable. I often imagine how simple life is for my buddy Wilfred… it keeps it all in perspective. When things get to be too much, my buddy is there. From the restless nights to the difficult situations, I have something that has been an elusive possibility…. I have hope again. I consider myself fortunate to have had this opportunity. Having this service animal has given me both an outlet for coping and restored much of my confidence. Thanks Soldier’s Best Friend and the generous donors who made this all possible.”
