STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, hand in hand with the fight to cure any illness goes the positive attitude of prevention. This is true of mental illness, whose correlate is mental health; and
WHEREAS, as progress is made in the attack upon mental illness, the people of Delaware are becoming constantly more aware of their own mental health and the ways in which they may best maintain it. Because this is a vital part of the full achievement of the complete and happy life which is our bright heritage; now
THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do proclaim the week of April 26 to May 2, 1959, as
MENTAL HEALTH WEEK IN DELAWARE
I urge the citizens of our state to be sharply aware of the information made available to them through Mental Health Week programs, in order that they may insure better mental health for themselves, their families, their home communities and their state.
IN WITNESS, WHEREOF, I, J. Caleb Boggs, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed at Dover this tenth day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty-nine and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-third.
J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor
GEORGE J. SCHULZ, Secretary of State
