Youth Behavioral Health: Strengthening Families, Schools, Communities
When people with mental health conditions or substance use disorders do not receive the proper treatment and supportive services they need, crisis situations can arise affecting individuals, families, schools, and communities.
National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day is a key strategy of the Caring for Every Child's Mental Health Campaign by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
National Prevention Week is a SAMHSA-supported annual health observance dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, substance abuse and mental health issues.
SAMHSA recently published "Should You Talk to Someone About a Drug, Alcohol, or Mental Health Problem?" and "Tips for Talking With and Helping Children and Youth Cope After a Disaster Fact Sheet" in Spanish. Both products are now available on the SAMHSA Store.
