What is MOMS for Mental Health?
Moms for Mental Health is a community wide public awareness campaign with three straightforward goals:
- Build an army of members with solid, useful, trusted information and resources regarding children’s mental health.
- Distribute the 10 Signs and Signals that can be red light warning signs of mental health problems in children and teens.
- Help remove the shame and stigma associated with getting help.
Behavior Has Meaning
If a child you know exhibits one or more of the 10 Red Light Warning Behaviors, and/or has a repeated disproportionate response to situations, please seek help from Tykes & Teens or another qualified mental health professional. Don’t assume it is “normal adolescent behavior.”
“I wish I had known then what I know now: that it was possible for everything to seem fine with him when it was not, and that behaviors I mistook as normal for a moody teenager were actually subtle signs of psychological deterioration.”
— Sue Klebold, mother of Eric Klebold, one of the Columbine shooters
