National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day (celebrated May 6) is every day when it comes to art and children expressing their feelings. Remember to post children’s drawings on the theme “My Feelings Are a Work of Art” on your organization’s Facebook, MySpace, or Flickr pages. Or email pictures of your event to the Campaign Team at AwarenessDay2010@vancomm.com.
