Governor's Proclamation

MARK SANFORD GOVERNOR STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA

WHEREAS, ensuring the mental health of our children is essential to their
growth and development; and

WHEREAS, children and adolescents can suffer various mental health
problems, including depression, anxiety, inappropriate behavior,
and eating and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders, which
can lead to poor academic performance, alcohol or other drug
abuse, family conflict, violence, or even suicide; and

WHEREAS, many young people who would benefit from mental health
services are not receiving the help they need; and

WHEREAS, learning to recognize the early warning signs of mental health
problems and where to obtain necessary assistance and
treatment gives children and adolescents better opportunities to
lead full and productive lives.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Mark Sanford, Governor of the Great State of
South Carolina, do hereby proclaim May 1 - 7, 2005, as

CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH WEEK

throughout the state and encourage all South Carolinians to work together to
raise awareness of the mental health needs of the children of the Palmetto
State.
