I walk in downtown Bozeman several times a week and I've noticed there are green ribbons on the light poles around town.  It got me wondering.  Why are there green ribbons in downtown Bozeman?

With some research I discovered that May is Mental Health Awareness Month.  Mental Health Month has been observed in the United States since 1949 and is typically identified with green ribbons.

This year Mental Health America's theme is Fitness #4Mind4Body.  They aim to focus on how to be healthy for our future and they are focusing on the following:

  • Diet and Nutrition
  • Stress
  • Sleep
  • Exercise
  • The Gut-Brian Connection
