What’s Happening Today – April 7, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
In 2008, “Prevent Child Abuse America” introduced pinwheels as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention. The pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. You may have noticed blue pinwheels popping up across Delmarva. Director of Legal Services at the Life Crisis Center, Abigail Marsh, and Organizer of the Pinwheels for Protection Campaign, Courtney Geiser, join us in the studio today.
According to a study in the Archives of General Psychiatry, about 20% of adolescents have a diagnosable mental health disorder. Another study in the Journal of Adolescent Health suggests that among adolescents with mental health needs, 70% do not receive the care they need. Dr. Sushma Jani, medical director at Community Behavioral Health joins us on the couches to talk about common mental health disorders in children.
The Annual Boardwalkin’ for Pets supports homeless animals right here on Delmarva. Heather Bahrami with the Worcester County Humane Society, and her furry friend Digger, join us in the studio to talk about their event taking place April 22 at the Ocean City Boardwalk starting at 8:30 am.
