For over 65 years, Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed during the month of May.  Mental health is defined as a person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being.

Join your host Jacquelyn Carter and DaLyah Jones with news director Taylor Zavala and reporters Clayton Kelley and Carlos Marquez III.

One of the underlying problems of mental health is the lack of conversation within minorities. Taylor Zavala talks about that problem and other stigmas associated with mental illness.

Texas State University provides services on campus from test anxiety to dealing with death. Learn more about the services offered on campus by listening to Clayton Kelley’s story.

Mental illness can occur from genetics, environmental stressors and many other reasons. Carlos Marques discusses how suppressing abuse can affect your mental health.
