In observance of Mental Health Awareness Month this May, the Texas Department of State Health Services Mental Health and Substance Abuse Division and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) - Texas held a statewide poetry contest open to adults with or in recovery from mental illness and their adult family members.
More than 80 poems were received from across Texas for this second annual contest, written by those living with and recovering from mental illness, their friends, and their families. Five winning entries were selected, along with six poems given honorable mention. Read the poems and learn more about the contest at 2013 Adult Mental Health Awareness Poetry Contest - Winning Poems!
Thank you to all who submitted poems for consideration and we look forward to reading more of your work in 2014!
Thank you to everyone throughout the state who helped make Capitol Day such a huge success.
