Children's Mental Health Awareness Week

May 5 - May 11, 2024

Throughout the year, we hear from caregivers, mental health professionals, and community members who want to spread awareness about the importance of children’s mental health and the need for services that support recovery, resilience, and success for youth. Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week is designed to do just that!

Running from May 5 - 11, 2024, this week is the perfect opportunity for our community to come together and make a difference. We're thrilled to offer a community kickoff event, The Baker SuperK Walk, Roll & Fun Run.

Be a Mental Health Hero!

The SuperK is a family-friendly 1K/5K and kick-off to Children's Mental Health Awareness Week. With more than 325 participants in attendance, our 2nd Annual Baker SuperK Walk, Roll & Fun Run was a huge success! And we're still going! We hope you can help us surpass our fundraising goal of $100,000. Thank you for all your support!
