     #BeThe Difference
      Mental Health in the New Year
Information from Mental Health First Aid USA
The new year marks a fresh start for many, including setting goals for the upcoming year. While many resolutions often center around physical health, Mental Health First Aid USA believes that incorporating mental wellness into your New Year’s resolutions is critical.

That’s why they will be focusing on building healthy habits for the new year during #BeTheDifference this January. Here’s how to get involved this month:
1. Join the chat. On Thursday, January 18, a #BeTheDifference Twitter chat on how to incorporate mental health into your New Year’s resolutions will be held. To join and share your strategies and goals for the year ahead, follow @MHFirstAidUSA on Twitter and use the hashtag #BeTheDifference in your responses.

2. Read the blog. Learn about ways to refocus on your mental health all year on the Mental Health First Aid blog. Read up and share with your networks!

3. Share your stories. Stories from our community about how Mental Health First Aid has impacted your life or someone else’s life. If you have a story to share, reach out to Erica Hoffman at EricaH@TheNationalCouncil.org for a chance to be featured on the blog.
