We are challenging students, parents and coworkers this season to cultivate and express gratitude by sharing it with teachers and staff within their own schools. We are committed to helping teachers know they are supported and appreciated and you can help by participating in our “Thank A Teacher” Project!

Use one of the premade templates on our website  to write a teacher, aide, coach, principal, counselor, support staff a thank you note – expressing your gratitude for how they’ve made an impact on your life or on your school.

If you’d like – share your notes on social media using the hashtag #CMHMMarylandGratitude

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 – Behavioral Health Administration.

The Campaign goal, with community and school champions 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.
