SPONSORSHIP

[nivoslider slug=”sponsors”]
The observation of Children’s Mental Health week is a national event. The Family Run Organizations of Nebraska and its statewide affiliate family organizations promote awareness about children’s mental health system issues and challenges. By elevating awareness of children’s mental health issues, coupled with the hope of encouraging early diagnosis and treatment, The Family Run Organizations of Nebraska aides in reducing the stigma associated with children’s mental health. Stigma is a barrier and discourages families from getting the help they need due to the fear of being discriminated against or judged.

Awareness occurs through a marketing campaign created each year that supports a specified topic from trauma to bullying, and occurs through various local awareness activities promoted by each statewide family organization.

Additionally, The Family Run Organizations of Nebraska and the Fraternal Order of Eagles (Eagle Riders) join forces to coordinate the Pony Express Ride across the state, which captures the idea of the original “pony express”. The Pony Express riders collect letters from each behavioral health region to be delivered to the steps of the state capitol and into the hands of our Governor by our youth.

The journey begins in Gering and Scottsbluff with a a biker parade and regional celebration involving community members and public officials. Each day involves several stops to collect letters and a celebration in the specific region in which they stop. The last day of the event includes a celebration for families across the state, which occurs in Lincoln following the delivery of the letters. The celebration includes dinner, awards, a youth panel, music, and many activities for children, young people and their families.
