May is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Month, and May 1-7 is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. Not only is good mental health important for emotional wellness, but it’s also critical for healthy social and cognitive development. Check out the information below (also accessible here) for information about this important topic. Wear green on Thursday, May 4 to show your support!
And check out the Community Cares Fair at Marbles Museum on May 18 from 6:00-7:30. There will be arts and crafts for the kids and lots of information about local programs that work with children and families to support mental health. And, the event is FREE! Here’s the brochure.
