#WishYouKnew Campaign

The #wishyouknew youth mental health campaign officially kicked off on Monday, November 25, with artwork by local artist Lauren Mills, quotes from outreach with hundreds of Washtenaw County youth and adults, and a short video featuring Alisha Spencer, a local mother and community leader who shares insights about how just listening helps.

"The campaign, a collaboration between the Washtenaw County Health Department and the Washtenaw County Community Mental Health Agency, aims to spark honest and supportive conversations about mental health between youth and adults,” says Kayla Steinberg, the health department’s communications coordinator, “and to spread hope that if we can share our truth with trusted people in our life, we can begin to heal.”
