On Our Sleeves is a national movement to break the silence surrounding children’s mental health. Our mission is to provide every community in America access to free, evidenced-informed educational resources necessary for breaking stigmas about child mental health, and educating families and advocates. We also support access to services by connecting families to trusted local resources.
Since Nationwide Children’s Hospital launched this movement on World Mental Health Day 2018, more than 2 million people have been reached with free educational resources to start conversations, educate families, and boost mental health and wellness.
We are proud to raise our voices as a member of the On Our Sleeves Alliance, composed of leading corporations, youth-serving and health care organizations, ambassadors, and individuals. Together, we make sure every family has access to these valuable resources to help their children.
Kids don’t wear their thoughts on their sleeves. Help us break the stigma and gives kids a voice. Join the movement for children’s mental health.
