The Kids & Family Expo is honored to promote our partnership with the Mental Health Foundation – be nice. program, which is a mental health education, bully and suicide prevention initiative that creates a positive cultural change through simple daily actions. The be nice. program is an Action Plan to help others notice, invite, challenge, and empower themselves and their peers. How you treat someone can have a direct effect on how they think, act and feel – their mental health.
