Partner with the Campaign

Each year, hundreds of nonprofits and other community agencies from counties across the State of Maryland come together to participate in the Children’s Mental Health Matters! Campaign by becoming a Community Champion for children’s mental health. Our Community Champions are a vibrant network of like-minded community leaders who are leveraging their networks to raise awareness, reduce stigma, and provide resources to improve children’s mental health and reduce substance use in this time of great need.

The pandemic has upended almost every aspect of life for our children—leaving many struggling more than ever before. This year, we need our community organizations to rally and become Community Champions for children’s mental health. When you sign-up, you’ll get access to a multitude of resources to share with your networks that will support families and children of all ages with resources like:

  • student activities and contests
  • parent resource kits
  • ready-to-go content for social media and publications
  • Children’s Mental Health Matters! Campaign events
  • and more!

Join the Children’s Mental Health Matters! Campaign and begin supporting your community through Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week—May 2-8, 2021—and beyond. 

The deadline to register for a Champion Materials Kit has now passed. Please explore our 2021 Champions Resources and Downloads pages for digital resources to support your awareness efforts! Some items are available via our publication order form.
