May 8th marks this year’s annual observance of National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day, with over 1,100 communities and 140 national organizations participating. SAMHSA is planning a launch event on May 6th to highlight the unique needs of young adults, ages 16-25, who have mental health challenges around issues of housing, education, employment, and healthcare access. SAMHSA will launch a hashtag challenge beginning April 1, 2014 to encourage a national dialogue about the value of peer support for young adults with behavioral health challenges. Those interested can join the national event by registering or viewing the live webcast.
