Join Ryan and Christina

Ryan and Christina Day have joined On Our Sleeves™, the movement developed by Nationwide Children’s Hospital to transform childhood mental health by creating The Ryan and Christina Day Fund for Pediatric and Adolescent Mental Wellness.

Ryan and Christina Day are making a bold commitment to extend their social mission to one of the most significant issues facing children and young adults today – mental health.

We’re in a Mental Health Crisis.  One in five children has a significantly impairing mental disorder; less than half get the treatment they need.  Half of mental health conditions begin by age 14, and 75% of mental illness presents by age 24.

The Day Family is getting behind this cause – with Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the national On Our Sleeves movement to support children and young adults living with mental illness.

It’s time to have an important local and national conversation about our children’s mental health - an often overlooked and vastly underfunded component of pediatric health. And it’s time to raise our voices for this important cause.

Coach Day understands first-hand the vitally important connection between mental health and physical health –but children and young adults don’t wear their thoughts on their sleeves when it comes to mental health issues.

This topic is deeply meaningful for Ryan and Christina Day.  They have been impacted, like so many others, by the loss of a family member to suicide.  As a result they are passionate advocates for supporting families, researching new treatments and developing prevention strategies. 

The Day Family is excited to announce the creation of the The Ryan and Christina Day Fund for Pediatric and Adolescent Mental Wellness at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The Day’s example will help raise awareness, increase educational opportunities, inspire advocacy, and be a role model for donating to a cause that has historically been ignored.
