National Sleep Awareness Week

The irony isn't lost on us...National Sleep Awareness Week begins the same Sunday as Daylight Savings Time. Perhaps losing an hour of sleep is the most poignant reminder that we all could benefit from a bit more of it. Join Impact as March 11th through the 17th we learn more about the importance of sleep, how it affects mental health and what we all can do to get more of it.

Self-Injury Awareness Day

Self-injury is difficult to talk about, but it is crucial to leading people to ask for help. This year on SIAD Impact has decided to share the infographic below on how to know the signs and stop the stigma. There is not one universal cause or solution for self-injury; however, conversation and education is a good place to start.
