May is Mental Health Awareness Month and in support of On Our Sleeves, the movement for children's mental health, several local corporate partners are getting involved. 

COLUMBUS, Ohio – In support of On Our Sleeves®, the movement for children’s mental health, several local and regional corporate partners have pledged their support to the platform in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month this May. These corporate activities help On Our Sleeves, which is powered by behavioral health experts at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, achieve its mission of providing free mental health educational resources to every community in America, including those in the central Ohio area, and empower advocates of children’s mental health. On Our Sleeves supports access to services by connecting families to trusted local resources.

“We couldn’t do what we do without valued partners like these,” said Steve Testa, president, Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation. “Some of them are raising money, some of them are raising awareness, and some are engaging in other ways, but every one of these companies is making a difference and we are grateful for their efforts.”
