It’s the month of May and Mental Health Awareness Month. We at Dominion Payroll are proud supporters of the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation whose mission is to raise awareness of teen mental health and to end the stigma associated with it. The work that CKG does provides education and support tools for teens and their families.

For Mental Health Awareness Month, CKG offers the following:

Broadcasting Live from the Cameron Gallagher Mental Health Resource Center at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond a part of the Virginia Treatment Center for Children at VCU Health – CKG Executive Director Grace Gallagher discusses options and roadways for families with mental health challenges needing a way forward.

A Suggestion from CKG Foundation: Fire Up Your Superpowers in May.

One big goal of the CKG Foundation is to point teens toward mental health tools or superpowers they already have – all the time, for free. We see it as a win times three.

  1. Discovery – Knowing you have them is empowerment.
  2. Training – Using your superpowers is the journey and the goal.
  3. Life Readiness – You can build mental and emotional strength which makes you prepared to navigate the stress of life, empowered. (see #1)
In May, CKG is not only celebrating mental health awareness with the rest of the planet we are celebrating four specific superpowers week by week.
Week 1 – The Magic of The Breath
Week 2 – The Restorative Powers of Sleep
Week 3 – The Natural Calm from Nature

Week 4 – Move Your Body – Slow the Thoughts

Join us on socials in May – interact, comment, and submit stories or ideas around the themes all month long.

Here is a short mental scan recording that can help release tension in the muscles of your body.
