National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day (Awareness Day) 2016 is Thursday, May 5.
Each year, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (SAMHSA) holds National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day to raise awareness for children’s mental health issues. This year’s event -- themed Finding Help. Finding Hope. -- is all about access to these care services – what resources are available and how they can be found.
