Friday, May 6, 2022 WEAR GREEN AND MEET US at 10:30 am in front of the Crowe Building, 874 Union Ave. for a photo. One positive impact of the pandemic that has challenged everyone's mental health is that, now more than ever, people are talking about it and know it's important. Why Green? To combat bias and discrimination! In the 1800s, the color green was used to brand people who were labeled “insane.” The children’s mental health community decided to continue using the color green, but with a completely different focus. Green signifies new life, new growth, and new beginnings. Therefore, we wear green ribbons to raise public awareness, better the lives of children with serious emotional disorders and show our support of these children and their families. In honor of Children’s Mental Health Acceptance Week, join the Center for Youth Advocacy and Well-Being in a week of social and emotional events to increase education around the importance of children's mental health in an effort to foster acceptance and end prejudice and discrimination.
