Today, millions of children are living with the burden of a mental health problem. They shoulder myriad issues like depression and anxiety, post-traumatic stress and bipolar disorder — debilitating illnesses that can strain every part of a person’s daily life. Even though help is out there, less than half of children with diagnosable mental health problems receive treatment. During National Mental Health Awareness Month, we shine a light on mental health awareness, stand with children in need, and increase our efforts to address mental health problems in America.Trails Carolina supports children with mental illness as they step into an environment away from the overwhelming stimuli of their everyday world by promoting mental health awareness. At Trails, an adolescent develops new skills and resources to address the emotional, social, academic or neurological challenges that they are struggling with. Through the expedition experience, students are empowered. Through academics and equine programming, students leverage the power of wilderness therapy in other settings – further building their confidence and the ability to sustain change.
For many, getting help starts with a conversation. People who believe they may be suffering from a mental health condition should talk about it with someone they trust and consult a health care provider. As a Nation, it is up to all of us to know the signs of mental health issues and lend a hand to those who are struggling. Shame and stigma too often leave children, adolescents and their families feeling like there is no place to turn. We need to make sure they know that asking for help is not a sign of weakness — it is a sign of strength.
Mental health problems remain a serious public health concern. This month, Trails Carolina Wilderness Therapy Program joins the Nation is encouraging all Americans to advance this important work by raising mental health awareness and lending strength and treatment options to all who need it.
