Be Kind to Yourself. Your Mental Health Matters.

Advocate Health encourages you to take care of your mental health and well-being, including your emotional, psychological (affecting the mind) and social well-being. Your mental health affects how you think, feel and act. It also helps determine how you handle stress, relate to others and make healthy choices. When experiencing mental health challenges your thinking, mood and behavior could be affected.

In recognition of the 2024 Mental Health Awareness Month, we encourage you to take care of yourself mentally and physically and to help break the silence around mental health.

Hear from Our Leaders

"As we embark on our first ever enterprise-wide Mental Health Awareness Campaign, I am reminded of the profound impact that mental health has on all our lives, both personally and professionally. Mental health is the cornerstone of our well-being,” said Gene Woods, CEO of Advocate Health. “Striving for work-life harmony and prioritizing mental health while navigating both challenges and triumphs is important to me. As a leader, putting mental health front and center is not just a responsibility; it is an opportunity to cultivate resilience, empathy and a supportive community for ourselves and each other.”
