Children’s Mental Health Awareness Resource Carnival
May 19, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Tennessee Voices for Children (TVC) and the Healthy Transitions Statewide Young Adult Leadership Council (YALC) invite you to join us for this free resource carnival for those who are directly and indirectly affected by mental health.
The YALC would like to use this event to bring awareness to the importance of using one’s voice and building a community in advocating for mental health awareness. There will be an exclusive chance to participate in the Dare to Dream America grant-winning, interactive photography project, “Humans in Real Life.”
This is an opportunity for youth and young adults to share their stories of living with a mental illness, substance abuse issue, and/or co-occurring disorder. Family members and loved ones will also be able to share their perspective in caring for someone affected by these conditions. The portraits and stories will be published on the Healthy Transitions website, social media, and potentially in a book.
There will also be giveaways, door prizes, food, and games! We would love to see you there!!!
