You're invited to join the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) at the National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day (Awareness Day) press briefing at the University of the District of Columbia Community College in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, May 7.

During the briefing, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will present chart-dominating singer, songwriter, and actress Demi Lovato with an award for her work as a mentor to young adults with mental health and substance use challenges. Together with SAMHSA Administrator Pamela S. Hyde, they will focus on the importance of social connectedness-a sense of community-in enhancing resilience in young adults with mental health and substance use challenges at home, school, work, and in accessing health care services.

Entry to the briefing is free and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
