The New Mexico Activities Association is proud to announce a Mental Health Awareness Campaign for the 2020-2021 school year. The NMAA recognizes a need to increase the attention given to mental health among all New Mexico students.

Each weekday from August 31-September 4, the NMAA will post on its social media platforms various video messages from students, coaches, and health professionals. For the remainder of the school year, the NMAA will designate “Wellness Wednesdays” as an opportunity to continue to promote mental health awareness. Each post will be accompanied by the Crisis Line phone number 1-855-662-7474 along with the hashtag #YouMatter. Some of the topics will include how to handle stress, recognizing the signs and symptoms of mental health issues, suicide prevention, and breaking any stigmas associated with mental health.
