Share your story

The most impactful tool you have is your story. Plain and simple. Talking about your experience candidly helps people identify with the issue—it can show how mental and behavioral health affects children and families. You can educate decision makers, inspire other advocates to share their own experiences and even encourage people in your community to get involved.

Share your story about the mental and behavioral health challenges your child(ren) and family face every day. Tell us what inspires you to take action for children’s mental and behavioral health.
