What Would I Tell My Younger Self?
Every day in May, throughout National Mental Health Awareness Month, the Child Mind Institute will share stories from prominent individuals speaking to their younger selves about growing up with a mental health or learning disorder.
Actress Emma Stone has anxiety and panic disorder. Author and playwright Jesse Eisenberg has OCD. New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall has borderline personality disorder. Former competitive swimmer and Olympian Michael Phelps has ADHD. These individuals and many others share messages of hope and courage.
Go to the Speak Up for Kids site to read and hear these inspiring stories.
#MyYoungerSelf is part of Speak Up for Kids, the Child Mind Institute’s annual public education campaign to raise awareness and counter the stigma for the 17 million children struggling with these disorders.
