Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

One in 6 children between the ages of 6 and 17 experience a mental health condition. Now, more than ever, it is critical to know that you are not alone and there is help.

There are lots of resources, including your school psychologist, social worker, or counselor.

You can also visit the FCPS Mental Health and Resiliency and Student Wellness: Tips and Strategies web pages to learn about mental health resources and fostering resiliency in your child.

In addition, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) offers a number of resources, including free counseling services.
