Recovery from mental health is definitely possible, and recovering from mental illness allows a person to live perfectly healthy, fulfilling lives. Help us promote awareness this month!

During the month of May, Mental Health Month helps raise awareness of trauma and the impact it can have on the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of children, families, and communities. Mental Health Month was first established in 1949 in an effort to raise awareness of the importance of mental and social wellness in the lives of American citizens, as well as to celebrate anyone and everyone who has recovered from mental illness. Mental and physical health are important for a person’s well-being. Lowering the rate of mental illness in the world can be achieved through prevention as well as treatment. Recovery from mental health is definitely possible, and recovering from mental illness allows a person to live perfectly healthy, fulfilling lives.

At Family Service Foundation (FSF), a social services organization in Baltimore, Maryland, we are dedicated to providing advocacy and support to individuals with mental and physical disabilities that have recently left inpatient settings. Integration back into the community can be difficult; for that reason, each member of our team works to provide services specifically tailored to each individual and family that we work with. We believe that all individuals can achieve their highest levels of social, physical, and emotional well-being in the community when they have the proper support. FSF specializes in serving Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and individuals with intellectual disabilities. We also have American Sign Language interpreters on staff at all of our locations for the convenience of our Deaf and hard of hearing clients.
