The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is proud to present the 2017 National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day event on Thursday, May 4. The event's highly interactive talk show format will focus on the importance of integrating behavioral health and primary care for children, youth, and young adults with mental and/or substance use disorders.

Michael Phelps, the world's most decorated Olympic athlete, and Allison Schmitt, an eight-time Olympic medalist, will serve as Awareness Day 2017 Honorary Chairpersons. They each will receive a SAMHSA Special Recognition Award for speaking candidly about their experiences with behavioral health, and how they are now working to support youth and young adults with similar experiences.

Audience members will have an opportunity to pose questions to the onstage panelists through email and social media using the hashtag #HeroesofHope.

The panels will include: 
-Partnering Across Disciplines to Address Whole Health
-Partnering to Strengthen Communication Between Behavioral Health Providers, Primary Clinicians, Youth, and Families
-Partnering to Improve Outcomes for Youth with Chronic Health Conditions

Admission is free, although registration is required to attend the event. Learn more and register
