The Mental Health Awareness Patch objectives are to educate Girl Scouts about the brain and its influence on thoughts, feelings, and behavior, and through that knowledge, increase awareness and understanding of mental illness. Through education we can change perceptions and reduce the stigma of mental illness.
The Mental Health Awareness Patch was created and is supported by the International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF). The non-profit IBPF is a San Diego-based group founded by parents of bipolar children and teens.
Their mission is to eliminate Bipolar Disorder through the advancement of research; to promote and enhance care and support services; and erase associated stigma through public education.
Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, and Seniors/Ambassadors can earn the patch. Click here for a packet with activity ideas appropriate for each age group.
Once earned, the Patch is provided for free by IBPF. If requested, a volunteer will work directly with service units and individual troops.
