MAY 10 is Children’s Mental Health Day

 

Mental illness knows no bounds. Everyone can suffer at any stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Positive mental health for children begins with healthy development. We find there are three overarching themes to a child’s health development that prepares them socially, emotionally and educationally to survive traumatic experiences and prevent mental health crisis.

 

Did you know? 13% of children ages 8-15 suffer from a mental illness in a given year and about half of mental disorders begin before the age of 14.

 

Find out what you can do to prevent child mental illness before it starts.
