The Children’s Mental Health Matters Campaign is a collaboration of the Mental Health Association of Maryland (MHAMD) and the Maryland Coalition of Families (MCF) with support from the Behavioral Health Administration and MD CARES.

The Campaign goal, with close to 100 partners across the state each year, is to raise awareness of the importance of children’s mental health. Each year, we celebrate Children’s Mental Health Matters! with over a week of events, workshops, media, outreach and other awareness raising activities.

Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week is just around the corner: May 3 -9, 2015!
