2022 Poster

The featured artists for the 2022 Children’s Mental Health Matters! poster are Terrell, Christian, Theo, and Jack, students at PHILLIPS Programs for Children and Families, in Laurel.

In this video, the students share more about their piece, “Freedom Through Expression,” which focuses on the different coping mechanisms and creative outlets of the artists.

The Children’s Mental Health Matters! Campaign collaborates with Maryland Association of Nonpublic Special Education Facilities each year to solicit artwork from nonpublic special education schools across the state. Our agencies then select a piece from those submitted to represent the Campaign for our annual Campaign poster which is displayed in schools, non-profits and other agencies across Maryland to raise awareness of the importance of children’s mental health.
