About On Our Sleeves

On Our Sleeves is the national movement to break stigmas around children’s mental health. No family should struggle alone on their journey. Our mission is to provide free mental health educational resources to every community in America to educate families and empower advocates. We also support access to services by connecting families to trusted local resources.

Free mental health educational resources. For every community.

We are in a national crisis: 1 in 5 children is living with a mental illness and 50% of lifetime mental illness presents before the age of 14. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people. And because children don't wear their thoughts on their sleeves, we need to give them a voice.

Join us by raising your voice for children's mental health.
