Local Hospital Launches Youth Mental Illness Awareness Campaign


Children's Hospital in Columbus has launched a campaign to raise awareness of youth mental illness. 

The campaign coincides with Wednesday's World Mental Health Day.  Organizers  say in a press release the effort emphasizes the need to end the stigma surrounding mental illness and provide education and resources. Organizers say the campaign uses child-friendly icons to help children communicate their emotions to adults and peers. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
