While the entire month of May is dedicated to mental health awareness, the week of May 5 to May 11 focuses on children and the Rosecrance Berry Campus is hosting an open house art show to celebrate.
From 2:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 9, the campus will be open to the public to view artwork created by children and adolescents in the campus' programs. The theme of the event is "What does Help, Hope, and Recovery mean to you?" and organizers hope it will increase awareness for the four million kids and adolescents in the U.S. that suffer from a serious mental disorder.
"The goal of our creative exhibit is to give our Berry clients an opportunity to express themselves in healthy ways," Berry Campus Administrator Charity Shaw-Moyado said. "They have so much to say and give, and often, their artwork and writing offers insight that can help adults around them understand how to provide the right level of care."
The show is free and refreshments will be served.
