In Case You Missed It – May 2023
May was Mental Health Awareness Month and a good time to reinforce our awareness of mental health issues, along with becoming more familiar with resources available for help. On our website you will find various self-inventory assessments, that can help bring more understanding to our own mental health. In addition, C&FS EAP hosted individual Mental Health Check In’s, where members were able to schedule a session to evaluate how they have been impacted by the experiences of the past year and identify strengths and areas of growth.
May was also the first anniversary of the May 14th racially motivated mass shooting at the Tops Market on Jefferson Avenue. During this month C&FS EAP will remember the ten lives lost and the adverse impact on members in this community. We would also like to reflect on the increased discussion and attention to advancing equity in the workplace and the community. And finally, we renew our commitment to advocating for inclusion, and challenging the hate that motivated this attack.
Creating a wellness focused workplace requires effort from all of us. Consider a small step you can take this month to:
- Remember that this anniversary will impact us all in different ways and we will all need to take care of ourselves differently. It is impossible for us to know what other people have experienced or are experiencing.
- Reflect on how this anniversary impacts us and how we can support ourselves and those around us.
- Renew our commitment to creating space for the people around us, listening, and being aware that we may not know the full impact events in the past year have had on others.
We remember. We reflect. We renew our commitment to the work ahead.
