Once again Nebraskans will be mounting their motorcycles to help bring awareness to children’s mental health issues. This statewide awareness and advocacy event places a spotlight on the challenges faced by families with young people whom have behavioral health challenges. The 2017 focus is:
Mental Health is Fundamental
For Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week 2016, the National Federation will focus on the importance of including mental health in all public health conversations. Mental Health is essential to overall health. We must treat mental health challenges with the same urgency and respect as we treat physical health challenges. Holistic health depends on our ability to be well, mind and body, which can be achieved through integrated care across systems.
No more shame. No more silence.
