About #wishyouknew

The Washtenaw County Health Department has teamed up with Washtenaw County Community Mental Health to design a campaign to address community concerns around youth mental health and reducing stigma.

Driven by community conversations, the Wish You Knew Washtenaw campaign aims to spark honest and supportive conversations about mental health between youth and adults. We hope that if we can share our truth with trusted people in our life, we can begin to heal.

Wish You Knew is funded by the Washtenaw County Mental Health and Public Safety Preservation Millage.
