May 9th is National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day

May 9th, 2013 is the National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day and SAMHSA wants everyone to participate.

National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day is a key strategy of the Caring for Every Child’s Mental Health Campaign, which is part of the Public Awareness and Support Strategic Initiative by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. In 2013, Awareness Day will be held on Thursday, May 9.

The effort seeks to raise awareness about the importance of children’s mental health and that positive mental health is essential to a child’s healthy development from birth. Last year, the national theme focused on building resilience in young children dealing with trauma.

Adolescent Counseling Services is devoted to adolescent mental health care, awareness, and education. Go to www.acs-teens.org to check out our  Programs and Resources.
