The 2016 Campaign is set for May 1 – 7, 2016! 

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 Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene – Behavioral Health Administration.

The Campaign goal, with close to 250 partners and schools across the state, 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.
