Mental Health Awareness month began in the United States in 1949 and was started by the Mental Health America (MHA) organization. May is used to raise awareness and educate the public about mental illnesses, the realities of living with these conditions, and strategies for attaining mental health and wellness. It also aims to draw attention to suicide, which can be precipitated by some mental illnesses. Additionally, Mental Health Awareness month strives to reduce the stigma that surrounds mental illnesses. This year’s theme is #Tools2Thrive.

Rachel Kendall’s journey did not begin with real estate. She spent the first decade of her working life as a teacher in California. Passionate about serving others, she made sure that all of her students had warm clothes for the winter and enough food to get through the day. Her efforts as an educator earned her the “Teaching Excellence Award.” When she moved on from teaching children, she opened her own fitness business where she continued to utilize her gift for teaching by educating women about health and wellness. Her passion for serving others also continued as she donated all of her profits to outfitting hundreds of children with cochlear implants. Rachel’s love for others now carries over into her real estate business. She coaches and mentors all of the team members, and she is a charismatic, thoughtful, and passionate team leader.
