May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time when the global community comes together to shed light on the importance of mental wellbeing. Throughout May, we embark on a collective journey to initiate open conversations, challenge stereotypes, and prioritize mental wellness for ourselves and those around us.

Recognizing that students and teachers face unique challenges, SXSW EDU aims to foster conversations addressing mental health concerns and providing valuable assistance. This year's programming continues to spotlight mental health and aims to equip the community with the knowledge and tools necessary to prioritize mental wellbeing and create supportive environments.

As we commemorate Mental Health Awareness Month, we invite you to explore SXSW EDU mental health programming, available to watch on YouTube or listen in the schedule:

2023 Mental Health Programming:

In the spirit of Mental Health Awareness Month, let us embrace empathy, compassion, and the courage to have difficult conversations. Together, we can break down the barriers surrounding mental health, nurture supportive communities, and pave the way for a brighter, more resilient future.
