April 7 is World Health Day

My health, my right.

The theme for World Health Day this year, celebrated on April 7. World Health Day was formally recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1948 as a global health awareness day.

The message behind the holiday encourages the idea that all people around the world should have access to healthcare, education and information, as well as safe drinking water, clean air, good nutrition and quality housing. 

The WHO Council on the Economics of Health for All found that at least 140 countries have health as a human right in their constitution. However, not all of these countries put laws into practice to ensure that their populations have that right. On this day, it is vitally important to educate and inform yourself and others on what we can do to help push for more access for these things and ensure that healthcare is a basic human right for all.

April is Autism Acceptance Month 

April is Autism Acceptance Month, focused on helping to raise awareness and celebrate individual differences for people with autism, fostering inclusivity and connectedness.

World Autism Day is also recognized on April 2.

Autism refers to a broad range of conditions that can hinder speech, social skills and other forms of communication and development. According to a 2023 CDC study, 1 in 36 kids and 1 in 45 adults have autism.

However, some people with autism are still able to live full and independent lives, holding significant positive attributes stemming from their diagnosis, such as attention to detail, strong observational skills, high levels of creativity and many others.

It is important to highlight the positives of autism and inform others as to what it really is. Get involved and help educate people to spark empathy and inclusivity for those affected by autism. You can also pledge to the Kindness Campaign with Autism Speaks, to encourage acceptance and understanding with daily acts of kindness. Together, we can create a more inclusive world.

April is Sexual Assualt Awareness & Prevention Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. During this month, advocates, survivors and the community come together to talk about sexual violence, offer support to those affected and increase knowledge and awareness to prevent sexual assault from happening.

According to the CDC, over half of women and almost one in three men have experienced sexual violence at some point and we must help survivors access safety, justice and healing. Abuse can happen anywhere and it is on us to educate others and intervene when we see someone in trouble.

We as community members can work together to help end sexual violence by speaking out and speaking up for victims and changing the culture that allows for it to occur.

If you or someone you know needs help, call the National Sexual Assault Hotline number at 1-800-656-4673.

Our voices have power.

In celebration of the impact they make, April is recognized as Counseling Awareness Month.

This holiday seeks to highlight the work and accomplishments of counselors, as well as to educate others of the role they have in the world. Counselors address a variety of human growth and development issues and problems of people from all backgrounds at any stage of their life, from childhood to adulthood.

At SCCMHA, our counselors reach out to consumers to help improve their quality of life, but also to help integrate them into society and become active members of their community. We are grateful for the encouragement and influence they supply to anyone who walks through our doors to assist in making our community and our world a better place.
