Subject Line: This May I'm speaking up for kids! Will you join me?
Did you know more than 15 million American children have a diagnosable psychiatric or learning disorder? That's more than the number of children with leukemia, diabetes and AIDs combined. Yet more than half these kids with social, emotional, behavioral, or learning issues will never get the help they need.
Together, we can help more kids get life-changing treatment. But only if we speak up!
The Child Mind Institute's Speak Up for Kids is a national public education campaign that seeks to draw attention to barriers to care, help erase the stigma that keeps many from seeking help, and empower families to get the care their kids need.
Visit the campaign website today at http://www.childmind.org/speakup - and add your voice using the #ISpeakUp hashtag.
