What Works for Me

The Military Health System (MHS) recognizes May as Mental Health Awareness Month to address the prevalence of mental illness and share information on the resources to address it.

During May, the MHS will promote the theme “What Works for Me” to stimulate conversation among providers, service members, and other members of the military community to share the tools that support their own mental health and emphasize the effectiveness of evidence-based treatment available to all service members and families in the MHS.

This month, service members, leaders, and health care providers will share what works for them to sustain their mental health, and relieve stress, sleep better, practice self-care, and more. In addition to sharing stories of how members of the military community boost their own mental health and resilience, the MHS is emphasizing the value of evidence-based treatments with mental health professionals. Both approaches can make real improvements in your mental health and quality of life.

The MHS also seeks to increase awareness about behavioral health care services and promote and enhance suicide prevention, intervention, and follow-up care for service members and their families.
