PAINT THE STATE GREEN
Paint the State Green is Please Pass the Love's campaign throughout the month of October to increase youth mental health awareness in the state of Iowa.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death in Iowa for people who are ages 15-24. One in five youth ages 13-18 experiences severe mental, emotional or behavioral disorder in a given year, but less than 20% of children with a mental disorder receive treatment. Because of these statistics, we need YOU to help us spread mental health awareness. The more we talk about it, the less we decrease the stigma. Join us throughout the month of October to talk, share, participate, donate, and let those who struggle know they are not alone!
