Every journey begins with a single step. Help us make the world a little more hopeful and connected by sharing the story of your mental health journey and what it’s like to walk in your shoes. Let’s change the world, one step at a time, by spreading awareness and letting others know that they are not walking alone!
In honor of Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, ACMH is offering a three-part virtual event to support youth/young adults and their families in sharing their voices and stories to spread hope, connection, and mental health awareness.
From April 9th through May 7th ACMH will host activities and make space for youth/young adults and their families to create videos that capture what it’s like to walk in their shoes or a share a mental health awareness message that’s meaningful to them.
Everyone is welcome to participate! Please share your videos on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, use the hashtag #WalkInMyShoes and tag ACMH when you post.
You can also send your submission to us at email@example.com if you would like us to post your creative expression! Be sure to let us know if you would like us to share your name alongside your creation or if you prefer to remain anonymous.
For those of you who would like some ideas about what or how to share click here for examples and tutorials for posting your video on social media or join us for a free Strategic Storytelling and Social Media Workshop on April 10 (see details below).
In addition, throughout the upcoming weeks, ACMH will also be posting ideas and prompts on our social media accounts to help guide you as you create your video.
We hope that you will consider participating in this event and sharing this opportunity with others! The more people that share their voice, the louder our messages will be! If you have any questions, please feel free to email Sara Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org.
