We are pleased to announce that the Association for Children’s Mental Health will be holding a special virtual event in honor of Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week! During the week of May 3 – 8, 2020, we are asking that youth with mental health challenges and their families share messages of hope, advocacy, and experience on social media using the hashtag #CreativeConversations. These messages can be through any creative medium they would like. Painting, dancing, cooking, writing, and photography are a few examples but the possibilities are endless!
Youth and families may choose to express their thoughts on a particular issue that is important to them, share their story, or just express who they are as we work together to shine a light on children’s mental health awareness. We will be sharing as many creative works as we can the week of May 3-8, 2020!
You can also send your submission to us at [email protected] 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.
Through the upcoming weeks, ACMH will also be posting prompts and creative exercises on our social media accounts to help you get thinking about how you might want to express yourself!
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!
