Get Your Green On
May is Mental Health Awareness and Trauma Informed Care Month!
The Get Your Green On campaign began in May 2016 when Healthier Delray Beach and students at Atlantic Community High School wanted to encourage the community to give attention to their mental health and wellness. The collaborative encouraged individuals to wear green and post pictures on social media as a way to show their support and commitment to their mental health and wellness.
In 2017, Birth to 22: United for Brighter Futures (an alliance of Palm Beach County community providers and champions) partnered with Healthier Delray Beach to take the campaign countywide. Now in its sixth year, The Get Your Green On campaign, is celebrated in neighborhoods, schools, businesses, government agencies, media outlets, and cities across Palm Beach County with proclamations, mental health events and activities, and thousands of individuals wearing green and posting pictures on social media.
1 in 4 adults and 1 in 5 youth (ages 13 to 18) experience serious mental health concerns.
