Children's Mental Health Awareness Week
One in five children is affected by mental health issues, including ADHD, depression and anxiety. Not only do these children and their families have to deal with the actual disorder, but they also have to deal with the stigma that is associated with mental health issues. By asking individuals to wear band-aids on May 7, DePelchin is trying to get people talking about mental health and help erase the fear and misunderstandings people have about disorders of the brain.
