SAMHSA’s National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day 2016: “Finding Help. Finding Hope.”
SAMHSA’s National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day 2016 event—“Finding Help. Finding Hope”—took place on May 5. The highly interactive format featured youth and family leaders, educators, law enforcement officials, and behavioral health professionals discussing how communities can work together to improve access to behavioral health services and supports for children, youth, and youth adults. During the event, SAMHSA presented a Special Recognition Award to this year’s Honorary Chairperson, Reid Ewing—–best known for his role as Dylan on “Modern Family”—–for sharing his personal experiences regarding mental health and for his efforts to educate others about the importance of accessing behavioral health services.
