Dear Evan Hansen x Child Mind Institute

The Child Mind Institute is proud to partner with the film Dear Evan Hansen – in theaters September 24th – to further awareness about youth mental health issues and bring essential resources to kids and families.

Stigma is often a major reason that kids with mental health challenges don’t get help. Films like this one inspire kids to lean on their communities and speak up when things get tough.
