Agree mental health needs help. I'll look for green paper plates - or I'll paint one green or glue green cloth to one. Thanks for helping. I worked in one of those large Psych hospitals before they closed them, and patients were much better off than our current practice of leaving them homeless on the streets or putting them in prison. We did need more professional staff to help them get out & into community housing & followup programs. I also worked in a pilot program in Tucson AZ providing ongoing community services that was ideal.

found a pattern for an easy 'visor' out of a green paper plate...suppose I'll have to make a blog to show how.

Please consider wearing a green hat if you are out and about next Friday and be willing to state something about Mental Illness.

Mayo Clinic: Mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior. Examples of mental illness include depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders and addictive behaviors. Many people have mental health concerns from time to time.

I have made and shared 14 green hats...we will be raising awareness of Mental Illness
Specifically Green ribbon is the color for child/adolescent Mental Illness

What gets kids 5-17 admitted to a psych hospital unit?
1) younger ones are SO hyperactive, aggressive that they are dangerous
2) self harming such as cutting themselves
3) Suicidal actions/statements/texting
4)Drug abuse often leading to #2 #3
