National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day


May 9th is SAMHSA’s National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day.  SAMHSA's "Caring for Every Child's Mental Health" was originally created in 1994 with the mission of increasing awareness around children's mental health issues.

The event will include an exhibit from the American Art Therapy Association, a tribute program to children who have demonstrated resilience after traumatic experiences, and a Special Recognition Award ceremony, which will honor artist, advocate, and Awareness Day National Event Honorary Chairperson Cyndi Lauper.
