Event Details

National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week is dedicated to recognizing the importance of children’s mental health as part of the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)’s Public Awareness and Support Strategic Initiative. In Texas, awareness is more important than ever. One in five children and youth have a diagnosable mental health need.This could be due to lack of knowledge and access, or stigma. Whatever the reason, children and families need to know it’s okay to seek help. So help us recognize Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week on Saturday, May 10, Stand up and Soar for Children’s Mental Health!

We will begin at the Texas State Capitol, kicking off the event with a 1 mile walk. We ask that everyone wears green shoes or pins green ribbons to your shoes. Green ribbons will be provided on site. We will then walk to Wooldridge Square Park on 900 Guadalupe Street to fly kites and picnic. Some kites will be available, but it is recommended that attendees plan to bring kites.
