ACMH’s #Worth1000Words event for Children’s Mental Health Awareness was a great success! Families, youth, young adults and partners from across Michigan shared deeply impactful photographs of their lives with us. We are so grateful to all who helped us to promote this event and those who shared their stories with us! We have combined all of the photos we received into a video which you can view below. Please feel free to share the video with others. Mental Health Awareness Month has come to an end, but we will continue to highlight youth and families voices at all levels!
Information about the May 2022 #Worth1000Words event:
The Association for Children’s Mental Health hosted a special virtual event in honor of Children’s Mental Health Awareness! Throughout the month of May families, parents and caregivers, providers, and youth shared their stories through photography which we shared on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
We created a calendar of prompts and photo ideas to help get participants into the creative spirit or they could choose do their own thing.
