National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day seeks to raise awareness about the importance of children’s mental health and to show that positive mental health is essential to a child’s healthy development from birth.
2017’s national focus is on the importance of integrating behavioral health and primary care for children, youth, and young adults with mental and/or substance use disorders.
Olympic champions Michael Phelps, the world’s most decorated Olympian, and Allison Schmitt, an eight–time Olympic medalist, will serve as Honorary Chairpersons of SAMHSA’s National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day (Awareness Day) 2017 national event!
The 2017 national theme is “Partnering for Help and Hope.”
