National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day

Each year, National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day aims to raise awareness about the importance of children’s mental health and show that positive mental health is essential to a child’s future. One in every four or five youth in the general population meets criteria for a lifetime mental disorder, and the risk of mental illness increases for young people from low-income families and those who have been involved with the juvenile justice or child welfare systems. Discrimination associated with mental illness poses a large barrier to recovery and is a main reason why people don’t seek help and treatment.

As part of Mental Health Awareness Month and National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day in May, NWF Health is proud to join together to raise awareness and build understanding of the significant role mental health plays in overall health and wellness. To find further information about National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day, related resources, and events and to learn more about mental health for young people, visit the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) website.
