Youth groups merge voices to plan mental health awareness event

As a youth coordinator, Kristin Murray gets to watch young people find their voices.

For the past seven months, she watched two local youth advocate groups come together to plan Arts for Advocacy, a free gala and reception Thursday to raise awareness of National Children’s Mental Health Day. The youth, ages 13 to 25, many of whom have personal experience with mental illness, will spread the message through singing, dancing, spoken word and their own visual art at The Museum, 4160 Boulevard Center Drive on the Southside.
