Mental Health Awareness Month

Green ribbon with words be kind to your mind

1 in 5 adults experience mental illness each year, but less than half get treatment, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

We at the Boynton Beach Police Department want you to know that you are not alone. You can always call us and we will help connect you to community resources. You can also call 2-1-1 or visit for free and confidential assistance that is available 24/7 .

Stigma and discrimination have caused so many of us to suffer. This Mental Health Month, we are working hard to break down stigma so no one struggles in silence.

You are not alone. We care. We are here.
