May is Mental Health Month

Town of Lexington Mental Health Task Force Logo

Our theme for 2020 is 
Screen to End Stigma!

Take a mental health screening.  

This free, private, online mental health screening is a quick way to assess your mental health and recognize signs of mental health problems. If your results indicate you may be experiencing mental health problems, please share your results with a mental health provider (such as a doctor or a therapist) who can give you a full assessment and talk to you about options for how to feel better.
