May 1-7 is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week in 2016. Recognizing the importance of mental health awareness and the expressive power of artistic pursuits, Maryland’s First Lady, Mrs. Yumi Hogan, invites youth to participate in a statewide art project. Children and youth are asked to create artwork expressing something which makes them feel mentally happy, healthy, and/or hopeful. National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day is Thursday May 5th. Wear green to show your support!
