May is Speak Up for Kids month, a campaign by the Child Mind Institute; this year they’re sharing honest stories from public figures about growing up with a mental health or learning disorder. #MyYoungerSelf is part of Speak Up for Kids, the Child Mind Institute’s campaign to raise public awareness and counter the stigma for the 1 in 5 children struggling with these disorders.
With the right care and support, we can help children reach their full potential in school and in life. Millions of these children don’t get help because of shame and fear. It’s time to end the stigma. Help us Speak Up for Kids by sharing these brave and powerful stories. Join the conversation. Tell your own story about growing up with a mental health or learning disorder by posting a video with the hashtag #MyYoungerSelf.
