The Sussex County Board of Chosen Freeholders issued a Proclamation designating May 8, 2014, as Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day.

On display during the meeting were three paintings done by members of the Youth Partnership. The Youth Partnership is a program run by Family Partners of Morris and Sussex Counties that provides an opportunity for youth to come together to get peer support, participate in social activities, volunteer in the community, learn leadership skills, and just have fun.

Rachel Helt, executive director of Family Partners accepted the Proclamation from Freeholder Deputy Director Dennis Mudrick at the April 23 Freeholder meeting.

The month of May is designated as National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Month; therefore, the artwork will be on display in the lobby of the Sussex County Administrative Center from now through the end of May.
