Mental Health Awareness Month

Greetings,

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, which aims to raise awareness of – and destigmatize – mental health conditions, advocate for mental health policies, and communicate that mental health is essential to our physical and emotional wellbeing.

We care deeply about you and your families and are committed to supporting mental health in our community and worldwide.

To learn more about National Mental Health Awareness Month, the attached resource outlines important facts and actions you can take. Now and always, we hope you take time to reflect, care for yourself and others, and know that your colleagues and leadership support you.

Juneteenth

As we approach June 19th, we want to take a moment to recognize and celebrate Juneteenth, a significant day in American history. Juneteenth is a federal United States holiday observed on June 19 and commemorates the emancipation of the last enslaved African Americans in the United States on June 19, 1865. This day symbolizes freedom, resilience, and the ongoing pursuit of equality and justice.

UCH is proud to acknowledge Juneteenth as one of our paid holidays. To honor Juneteenth, we encourage all employees to reflect on its historical importance and consider ways we can continue to support diversity, equity, and inclusion in our workplace and community. Here are a few ways to observe this day:

Education and Awareness: Take time to learn more about the history and significance of Juneteenth. There are many resources available, including documentaries, books, and articles that provide valuable insights.

Community Engagement: Participate in local Juneteenth events or support organizations that promote racial equality and social justice.

Open Dialogue: Engage in conversations with colleagues about the importance of Juneteenth and share your thoughts and experiences. This helps foster a culture of understanding and inclusivity.

As we observe Juneteenth, let’s reflect on the progress we’ve made and the work that still lies ahead. Together, we can continue to build a more inclusive and equitable environment for everyone.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to these values.
