Shining a Light on Mental Health Awareness: Honolulu’s 2024 Illumination Campaign

In 2024, the city of Honolulu honored Mental Health Month with a special illumination at Honolulu Hale. From May 13 at sunset to May 17 at sunrise, the building was bathed in green light, symbolizing the importance of mental health awareness and support within the community.

The Hawaii State Department of Health led the Mental Health Month campaign, aiming to spark conversations about the significance of maintaining good mental health. The initiative focused on equipping individuals with tools to manage stress, navigate difficult emotions, and address challenging situations effectively.

Through collaboration with various community partners, including the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Division and Adult Mental Health Division, the state worked to educate and advocate for mental health improvement. These efforts extended to fostering a supportive environment for individuals, their friends, and family members, as well as empowering communities to prioritize mental well-being.

By shining a green light on mental health awareness, Honolulu stood as a beacon of hope and encouragement for individuals to prioritize their mental health, seek support, and engage in conversations that promoted mental wellness.
