Lehigh County, in partnership with NAMI Lehigh Valley, celebrate Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day by raising awareness and showing that positive mental health is essential to a child’s healthy development.
Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day will take place on Thursday, May 4 at 1 p.m. at Lehigh County Government Center, 17 South 7th Street in Allentown.
Attending will be County Executive Thomas Muller; Representative Michael Schlossberg, Democratic co-chair and co-founder of the Mental Health Caucus, who has helped members of the General Assembly and citizens of Pennsylvania understand mental health issues and concerns; Mariel Hufnagel, a Speaker with Minding Your Mind who will talk about her personal journey; and local Musician Craig Thatcher who is an advocate of mental health awareness and eradication of stigma.
Mental Health impacts 1 out of 5 children in our community. Courageous conversations can help reduce stigma and build healthy communities where our children can live, love, and learn to their full potential.
