Many adults are juggling a variety of personal, family, and work obligations on a day-to-day basis. Trying to keep up with the daily grind can be stressful and sometimes even feel quite overwhelming, especially when compounded with a mental health struggle.

It's OK to ask for help

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental illness in a given year and more than 50 percent of people in the United States will be diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lifetime. We want you to know that you are not alone.  If you are feeling overwhelmed, lonely, depressed or exhausted, we encourage you to take advantage of the resources available to you.

 

As a part of the Cowboy Family, we have to look out for each other. Taking care of your own mental health is certainly important, but we ask you to do your part in looking out for fellow Cowboys. By becoming educated, trained and prepared, we can all work together to end the stigma surrounding mental health.
