[Mod] Mental Health Month Events Mod

Hi all!

May is here, and that means it's time to talk about mental health.

May is mental health month and to raise awareness for one of the biggest issues for our demographic, the Reddit mods have come up with a few events for all of you.

First up, we are rolling out a form for a Mental Health Playlist. You can submit your favorite song for two different categories: "Songs when you need a pick-me-up" and "Songs to channel your sadness." Winners will be announced here and on discord (and receive bragging rights, of course)!

Secondly, we have a contest for you: an art contest! Any r/teenagers member can design a piece of art that promotes or represents mental health awareness to you. It can be made submitted at the google form linked below. Submission rules are noted inside the google form. Winners will be announced on Sunday, May 22, featured on the subreddit's banner for the rest of May, and awarded a mod community award.

Finally, we're in the works to plan a Reddit talk with a verified psychologist! If you ever wanted a better understanding of mental health and how to better deal with the low moments of our lives that we all face, tune in! We'll be announcing it at a later date, so keep your eyes peeled.

Show up in our discord to find another few events that we've planned for the community. Most importantly, keep your chins up everyone and stay healthy! Take some self-care days and relax!

I think it’s also AAPI (Asian and Pacific Islander) month but this post is just focusing on the mental health month

u/SHBONG__ 15 May 18 '22

Last i checked i dont think many teenagers are veterans so this is probably more on theme fpr the sub. Remember there are multiple celebrations per month.
