Made Possible By: On Our Sleeves®, the movement for children’s mental health
One in five children today is living with a mental illness. That’s why it’s important to talk about children’s mental health. The Breaking Stigmas program helps children recognize, identify, and manage their emotions, while also learning how to foster empathy and express kindness to help their peers. Use the take-home letter to bring students’ families into your classroom conversation. Help On Our Sleeves® break the stigma of silence so we can transform children’s mental health. Additional kits on emotional empowerment and taking a day time break also provide tools for supporting students’ mental wellness.
Your opinion is important to our program sponsors, and to YMI. We depend on your input to continue providing free educational resources that make a real difference in the classroom.
