Earlier this afternoon Governor Mead proclaimed this week as Children's Mental Health Awareness Week in Wyoming. The theme this year is "Out of the Shadows - Exposing Stigma.
With the spotlight shining on the critical need for mental health care reform across the country advocates here in Wyoming and elsewhere want to continue educating the nation about children's mental health. Not only this week but through the entire year. They want to promote materials that will bring mental health out of the shadows and into everyday conversations.
