Mental Health Awareness Month at Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to recognize the importance of mental health and the impact it has on our lives.  


At Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, we’re committed to supporting the mental health of our Club members. We offer a wide range of programs and services that promote positive mental health and well-being, including in-person individual sessions, small social-emotional learning (SEL) groups, and access to community resources for families at least twice per week across all 20 of our Clubs. 

Our dedicated, award-winning, mental health team are part of our Clubs and communities and are focused on helping families understand how to best support children’s mental health needs. Our communities should never have to navigate mental health challenges alone.   

Throughout this month, we invite you to join us as we share activities, information, stories, and resources to support the mental health and well-being of our children and our families. This Mental Health Awareness Month, let’s commit to prioritizing our mental health and one another. Together, we can build a brighter, more resilient future for all. Check out our activities, stories, and resources below.  

We will continue to add to our library throughout the month of May!
