Childrens Mental Health Awareness Day
Over 1-thousand communities across the country will celebrate Children's Mental Health Awareness Day this Thursday. This Substance Abuse and Mental Health event hopes to raise awareness about positive mental health from birth. This year’s national event emphasizes the need to build resilience in young children dealing with trauma. Research has shown that when children as young as 18 months are exposed to traumatic events, they can develop serious psychological problems later in life and have a greater risk for experiencing problems with substance abuse, depression, and physical health. To celebrate Awareness Day locally, Frontier Health is co-hosting a Kid Power event expected to draw as many as 5-thousand. News Data indicates that 84 percent of children who receive mental health services experienced a traumatic event, 49 percent reported the loss of a loved one and 47 percent witnessed domestic violence.
