Children’s Mental Health Awareness Toolkit
Our children’s mental health is just as important as their physical health. Did you know that 50% of all lifetime mental health conditions begin before the age 14? While many can be treated, nearly half of adolescents with mental health issues do not receive mental health care services. It is important to our children’s overall health and well-being that they get the mental health support they need.
Integral Care and NAMI Central Texas created a toolkit for the community to support children’s mental health year-round. We hope these tools help you have conversation with your children around mental health and build strong, healthy minds. Let’s give our children’s mental health the attention it deserves every day. Recovery from a mental health issue is possible.
