On Our Sleeves

A national movement to promote children’s mental wellness and prevent crises

Because kids don’t always wear their thoughts on their sleeves, it can be difficult to tell when a child is struggling.

Celebrating Black History Month

The month of February is an opportunity to learn about the rich history of Black Americans. During this time, we celebrate the many incredible innovations and accomplishments, in addition to sharing inspiring stories of resilience, intelligence, and strength.

According to research, children who are told positive stories about their racial and ethnic background have better mental health outcomes. Taking time to remember the contributions of Black Americans can be encouraging to all of us. Download our Black History Month activity (also available in Spanish) to learn more and celebrate Black History Month together.
