Since 1949, Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in the United States during May, reaching people through media, campaigns, local events, and screenings. In honor of the celebration, Roseann Bennett, Co-Founder of the Center for Assessment and Treatment, published a series of articles for mental health education.
Since the year the National Association for Mental Health started the Mental Health Awareness Months, the organization releases a toolkit of materials to guide preparations for activities during the month. The National Association for Mental health, its affiliates, and other local organizations interested in providing services in honor of the celebration follow a theme each year.
For this year’s theme, “Fitness #4Mind4Body” focuses on what we, as individuals can do to be fit for our futures, no matter where we happen to be on our journey in health.
The Center for Assessment and Treatment, a nonprofit mental health organization, aims to fulfill lives of individuals for them to live healthier by providing quality mental health services. On June 4, the organization announced the publishing of a recent series of articles to support the Mental Health Awareness Month.
“These articles were written for the same reason I started the Center – to help those that need it,” said Roseann Bennett, Executive Director for the Center for Assessment and Treatment and the writer of the latest series of articles.
Bennett, an experienced family therapist, offered tips people can use to stay on track with their well-being, in line with this year’s theme. Bennett has focused on the subject, writing topics about family therapy. One sample article of Benett is about the role of untreated depression, how it affects in divorce, and what the couple’s future looks like.
Together with her husband, Benett opened the Center for Assessment and Treatment in Hackettstown, N.J., after being an in-home therapist for several years. Benett has provided mental health services to various individuals and has years of experience in experience in marital and family therapy, case management, crisis management, and treatment planning.
Roseann Bennett “considers a holistic and systematic view of problems that she encounters,” as shown in the organization and her recent articles.
