Virtual Student Art Contest for High School Students

Mental health has never been a central topic of discussion for all of us. We all tend to pay more attention to physical health than mental health and even avoid talking about it with our friends and families. There is a stereotype in our society that one with a mental illness falls into the category of mental people, which is entirely wrong. There are different types of mental health issues that need to be addressed and cured. In today’s time, not only adults but children also face mental health problems. The environment in which they live, the pressure of earning good marks and doing good in sports, pressure from parents or teachers, bullying and so on are some of the reasons that cause mental health illness to children. To raise awareness about children’s mental health, the City of Fremont Human Service Department is now hosting an excellent Virtual Student Art Contest.

The mission of this contest is to make people more aware of children’s mental health and encourage them to do whatever is possible to keep their children mentally fit. City of Fremont Human Service Department knows that people think that children don’t experience any issue concerning mental health, and that is why they don’t even try to ask their children about what they are feeling. Children go through mental health issues, too, and these problems need to be addressed and cured in starting before they increase. By participating in this contest, you can help the City of Fremont Human Service Department in its mission of promoting mental health awareness among people. All you need to do is create your masterpiece and send it to the City of Fremont Human Service Department by the application deadline.

City of Fremont Human Service Department has been working to support a vibrant community through services that empower individuals, strengthen families, encourage self-sufficiency, enhance neighbourhoods and foster a high quality of life.
