May 3-9 is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week in 2020. Recognizing the importance of mental health awareness and the expressive power of artistic pursuits, Maryland’s First Lady, Mrs. Yumi Hogan, invites children and youth to participate in a statewide art project. Children and youth are asked to create artwork expressing something which makes them feel happy, healthy, and/or hopeful. A selection of artwork will be showcased in Annapolis at the First Lady’s Mental Health Awareness Youth Art Display either digitally or in person in Annapolis at Celebrating Through Art: The First Lady’s Mental Health Awareness Youth Art Display with a reception on Monday, May 4, 2020. We invite your school to participate!
