May Is Mental Health Awareness Month

One of CHAARG’s core values is that we are strong — physically, mentally, + emotionally. We believe that overall wellness is closely tied between your physical being, mental health, + emotional resilience. We know + have seen firsthand how mental wellness has affected our community + we’re proud of so many CHAARG girls who have shared their mental health journey.

We created this resource guide to share with you the stories of our CHAARG girls, shine light on the incredible organizations, like Mental Health America + the National Alliance on Mental Illness, that provide education on what mental illness is + how we can end the stigma associated with it, ++ advice/support from CHAARG girls when it comes to therapy, anti-depressants, coping mechanisms, supporting friends, + more. As always, we encourage you to seek support from a doctor or licensed therapist. We hope that this guide serves you, + please let us know if there are any other topics you’d like us to dive into!

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.
