Mental Health Week- Wearing Green

 Going green is no longer just for St. Patircks and Earth Day.

This week people around the country are wearing green ribbons to raise public awareness of Children's Mental Health Week.

Why the Green Ribbon?

"In the 1800’s, the color green was used to brand people who were labeled “insane”. The children’s mental health community decided to continue using the color green, but with a completely different focus. Green signifies new life, new growth, and new beginnings. Therefore, green ribbons are worn to raise public awareness to better the lives of children and youth with serious emotional disorders. Please show your support of these children and their families."  Information Source GreenRibbonAdvocates.com
