2024 Idaho Mental Health Month Campaign

2024 Idaho Mental Health Month Art Exhibition Reel

 

The 2024 Idaho Mental Health Month Art Exhibition Reel honors the mental health journeys of our fellow Idahoans through artistic expression in a creative and interactive video. This video showcases art pieces and highlights artists’ experiences and relationship with mental health. Watch the full video on our YouTube!

Annually, Empower Idaho partners with the seven Idaho Behavioral Health Boards (BHBs) to recognize a mental health advocate in their region. The BHBs select an individual in their respective communities who exemplifies community advocacy, resiliency, and passion for mental health. Each advocate’s work embodies these qualities and deserves acknowledgement and celebration.

We look forward to awarding the 2024 Idaho Mental Health Advocates!

Empower Idaho’s Program Manager, Alejandra Del Toro, spoke about our Idaho Mental Health Month activities on the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare’s Idaho Behavioral Health Authority podcast. Listen to the podcast on Spotify or watch it on YouTube starting at 16:16 to learn more about Empower Idaho and our Mental Health Month celebrations!
