Back to School

Preparing children for a new school year typically involves buying new clothes, replacing last year's backpack, and stocking up on new school equipment. Often overlooked are other important issues such as a child's feelings and emotions about starting or returning to school. The theme for this year's campaign is -15+ Make Time to Listen, Take Time to Talk. The 15+ program was developed by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to help parents and kids talk about everyday issues and tough topics. NMHA is working to adapt and promote the program for community use. The 15+ theme stresses the importance of positive parent-child communication in the emotional development and educational success of children.
