Project Harmony Honors Child Health Day on October 4

October 4 is Child Health Day, and Project Harmony ( is honoring this day by bringing awareness to depression and suicide in children, two of the top 10 health concerns in our nation’s youth according to the National Poll on Children’s Health. American youth are expected to handle bigger and bigger issues. These levels of stress are not only unhealthy for children, but can cause illness and significantly impact the brain.

Understandably, this is a stressful time for all of us – but if you are a parent, caregiver, or teacher, how do you know when a child needs help? Connections at Project Harmony created an easy reference guide on what to watch out for in different age groups, and it also includes information geared toward virtual learners. If a child you know needs help, talk to your school counselor or social worker about referring them to Connections at Project Harmony.

Project Harmony is a nonprofit, community-based organization that has served more than 48,000 children during the past 25 years by providing a child friendly environment in which specially-trained professionals work together to assess, investigate, and resolve child abuse cases.
