National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day
National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day shines a national spotlight on the importance of caring for every child’s mental health and reinforces that positive mental health is essential to a child’s healthy development.
In 2005, Awareness Day began as a grassroots effort among SAMHSA-funded systems of care, and it has expanded to include other federal programs and national organizations. Learn more about SAMHSA’s most recent events.
