In addition to Mental Health Awareness Month, May is recognized as Older Americans Month!

Older Americans Month is celebrated to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of older adults, highlight important trends in our aging population, and strengthen our commitment to honoring older Texans.


While there has been increased awareness about the youth mental health crisis in our country — a critically important action — the mental health of Americans aged 65 and older is often overlooked. Whether they are our parents, grandparents, spouses, or friends, our older adults are a vitally important part of our community who deserve the same attention, care, and support when it comes to their mental well-being.
