Helping Parents, Families, & Caregivers

Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day, May 9th

National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day, May 9, 2013

Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day is coming up May 9, 2013 and this is a time to focus exclusively on the issues that plague our children today. Issues that dominate the media are also of importance such as:

  • poverty
  • homelessness
  • gun control laws
  • bullying prevention and development of consequences
  • preventing mass violence
  • providing resources for kids within the educational system to receive mental health services
  • better services for children with autism spectrum disorders
  • insurance-related concerns
  • juvenile delinquency and criminalizing the mentally ill
  • understanding the adolescent brain and its inability to make mature decisions

 

To listen to the ENUF (Ending Negativity to Unite Families) series on bullying, go to my sister-site at Caregivers, Family, & Friends

Spread the word about Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day, we’ve already taken way too long to do so.

All the best

   
As always, I wish you well
