Being aware of your mental health is important because it affects every single facet of your life. Washburn Center for Children believes that your mental health is as important as your physical health.
But why is mental health important to you?
At Washburn Center, we want children and their families to have a place to find hope and healing in times of increased conflict, stressors or trauma.
You can help support and increase awareness of mental health by joining us for National Mental Health Month through:
- Telling us your Why? Share why supporting mental health is important to you!
- Following us on Facebook and Twitter and join in the conversation. We’ll be sharing Whys throughout the month of May, including a Facebook Live event with our CEO, Tom Steinmetz on May 18 at 5:30 p.m. He’ll share his personal Why and Washburn Center’s Why.
- Making a gift in support of children’s mental health. Your contribution restores the happiness of a child that has been struggling with depression.
- Sharing or posting messages in support of Washburn Center and children’s mental health. Sample messages include:
