Onondaga County System of Care

Got Art? 2011

In celebration of National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day, OnCare held an art event called Got Art? 50 Children and youth from Onondaga County with an emotional or behavioral challenge created art related to this year’s theme: Resilience. Over 200 people attended Got Art?.

Got Art? was held at the Museum Of Science and Technology (MOST). Ann Rooney, Deputy County Executive for Human Services, presented a proclamation from Joanne M. Mahoney, County Executive, about the importance of caring for every child’s mental health. Several youth read their original poetry during the opening. After the presentation, the MOST was open exclusively for Got Art? participants and viewers.

It was a great evening spent with families, friends and supporters of OnCare. We can’t wait for next year!
