It’s all about the children and their mental health on Friday at the Linda K. Epling Stadium. 

Friday is National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day. It was created to show how important a child’s mental health is to their development and every day life. Project Coordinator, Leah Kidd, said it is more important then ever to bring awareness to children’s mental health.

“With the opioid epidemic, we’re finding that it has a profound impact on our children’s well-being. Whether it be at school or in the homes, we’re finding that they have difficulty in all of those areas,” Leah Kidd, Project Coordinator of FMRS WRAPP Grant, said. 

The event goes from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, May 4. People will be able to park at Linda K. Epling Stadium, as well as Stratton Elementary school and Pinehaven Shelter.
