Simple Ring SmallAs part of Mental Health Awareness Month, the 1-in-5 Kids Campaign organized an event on May 29, “A Community Conversation about Children’s Mental Health,” to raise awareness of the need for Chesterfield elected officials and residents to address mental health issues in children. The event served as an important vehicle for keeping children’s mental health issues in the spotlight for key legislators who shape Virginia’s budget and for bringing together families and treatment professionals to discuss ways to improve the lives of children with mental health challenges.

The Campaign hopes to replicate this type of event in other areas of the state. If you are interested in having an event like this in your locality, please contact campaign coordinator Margaret Nimmo Crowe,
