There are a number of great Awareness Day and Month activities coming up in May and we will be reporting on all of them. Take a look at the SAMHSA Initiative - National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day, Thursday, May 9, 2013.
Here is the description from SAMHSA:
- You can help raise awareness about the importance of children's mental health by sharing information about trauma and resilience in children.
- Communities around the country participated last year by holding their own Awareness Day events, focusing either on the national theme, or adapting the theme to the populations they serve.
- The effort seeks to raise awareness about the importance of children's mental health. Positive mental health is essential to a child's healthy development from birth.
