MY LIFE went BIG in support of Children's Mental Health Awareness Week by advocating displaying a supersized green ribbon as part of their MY LIFE Youth Day at the Pennsylvania State Capitol event. Over 100 youth and youth supporters from across Pennsylvania took part in this unique event and had their voices heard by elected officials, while reducing stigma and drawing attention to issues effecting youth.
MY LIFE youth shared inspiring messages of hope and recovery related to overcoming their personal challenges with mental health and attendees also heard a passionate message from Representative Gene DiGirolamo, House Health and Human Services Committee Chairman and motivational youth speaker Melissa Anne Hopely. Numerous youth also had the opportunity to meet individually with Legislators and shared their personal experiences with mental health issues and offered ideas for improving outcomes for youth and young adults.
