MHASP will participate in National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week activities with Philadelphia and Montgomery counties in a full day event on Thursday, May 9th at Love Park (16th and JFK Boulevard Philadelphia, PA 19102) and a number of community and school events in Montgomery Co.
If you’re around, please come out to support the awareness efforts and enjoy the late afternoon flash dance, which will include our staff and young people from around the city and DBH folks. One of the ways to acknowledge this awareness week is to wear or display a green ribbon.
