Awareness is defined as knowledge or realization. It is the bridge
from ignorance to action. The key is people who are willing to go
beyond being aware to take positive action.
Back in the 1800s the color green was used to brand the insane population.
MO-SPAN decided to continue using the color green, but with a completely
different focus. Green signifies new life, new growth, and new beginnings.
Therefore, we wear the green ribbon to raise public awareness towards
bettering the lives of children with serious
emotional disorders and show our support of these children and
Display a green ribbon in a prominent place to show awareness of
these children and their families!
