Find Connections. Build Community.
Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week -- held every year during the first week of May (National Mental Health Awareness Month) -- is a national campaign that raises awareness and funds to promote better mental health for children.
At The Youth Mental Health Project, we work every day to ensure that families have support to care for and strengthen their children’s mental health – and since the pandemic affected so many families, we have seen an explosion in the number of children and families grappling with mental health challenges.
This year, we are focusing our events on the theme: “Find Connections. Build Community.” Everyone needs to have a sense of belonging, and youth struggling with their mental health need to find connections that can support them with their struggles by understanding their perspectives.
This year, during Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, we are hosting a week of events and asking everyone to help us build a community that will help children and young adults find their connections. It's time to spread awareness about children’s mental health, to get talking about -- and funding! -- the needs of children and families struggling with emotional, behavioral, or mental health challenges.
Please support us by joining these events or donate to The Youth Mental Health Project.
