Under the theme: "The Power of Play: Helping Children Cope in the COVID-19 Era," we will host a free virtual Child and Adolescent Mental Health Virtual Roundtable event. This will be held on Thursday, May 27, 2021, between 6:00 and 9:00 pm EST. The graphic designer will create design pieces to be used on the website, social media activities, and print media to promote the day and the event.

When my son Nathan was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, he was only nine months old. The news was devastating to my family, and I felt like my life was over. Feeling lost, out of my depth, and alone, I struggled for years seeking answers. This search has led me to become one of the leading voices of advocacy for children with disabilities and their families in my country. Today, what began as a 'tragedy' has become a transforming my nation of Jamaica. Over this time, I have become present to the knowledge that millions of children with disabilities worldwide whose parents need the information and support that we provide. By supporting this project, you will be lending helping to enable us to reach thousands of parents, teachers, and community members of children with disabilities and mental health challenges. You will also strengthen our capacity to produce high-quality graphic design pieces, banners, social media images, and flyers to promote the roundtable event and the awareness day.
