One in five children is living with a mental illness and 50 percent of all lifetime mental illness starts by age 14, yet there is still stigma around this national health crisis.  On Our Sleeves was launched by Nationwide Children’s Hospital to build a community of support for children living with mental illness through advocacy, education and fundraising for much-needed research.

Millions of children and families across America are living with mental illness. So Radio One Columbus has partnered with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to help eliminate the stigma around mental illness in children and young adults, provide much needed educational resources and accelerate funding for research at Nationwide Children’s.  But we need your help, click here or give below to donate and find more information.
