May Is Mental Health Awareness Month
So many incredible organizations [like Mental Health America + the National Alliance on Mental Illness] are bringing awareness to Mental Health through providing amazing resources [like MHA’s free online Mental Health screening!] as well as education on what Mental Illness is + how we can end the stigma associated with it.
One of CHAARG’s core values is that we are strong:
We believe that overall wellness is closely tied between your physical being, mental health, + emotional resilience. We know + have seen firsthand how mental illness has affected our community + we’re proud of so many CHAARG women who have shared their stories regarding their Mental Health journey.
All throughout the Month of May, we are joining the movement to start the conversation on mental health, fight stigma of this topic, + provide support//resources for not only the CHAARG community, but men + women across the country. Join us in continuing to raise awareness for Mental Illness all throughout the month of May + please share this page. You never know what those around you may be going through ++ who this could help!

Mental Health + exercise
As you probably already know — CHAARG girls love to sweat. One of our core beliefs is that when you work out, you feel good! So, it’s no surprise that exercise is directly related to mental health.
