Kids’ Minds Matter: Unmasking the Epidemic
March 18, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join the SWFL community on MARCH 18 in uniting as one voice for the thousands of children struggling with mental health issues during this FREE virtual event. This event is your first step in providing hope for thousands of children who desperately need access to mental health care in your back yard.
It is no secret that COVID-19 has greatly impacted our community, businesses, nonprofits, and families. The isolation and uncertainty have also led to long-term mental health implications. Our children are suffering and keeping up with the growing demand is a challenge. Through generous donations, strategic planning and collaboration with community partners, access to care is increasing across the region, though the need continues to surpass available resources.
Our community is facing a mental health epidemic, and it is only going to get worse unless we come together to show our children they are not alone.
Please dedicate 1-hour on March 18 as we unmask the mental health resources available to your family, unmask the faces of local youth who are advocating for enhanced access to mental health care, and unmask the change desperately needed for our children.
