Mental Health Awareness Month

Publisher: 
SAMHSA/NRC

Provides information on Mental Health Awareness Month. Mental health disorders are one of the leading causes of disability among adolescents, affecting about one in five children in this age group.  Infants and young children can also have mental health disorders that affect their relationships and overall development; about 1 in 10 children age birth to 5 experience social and emotional problems. Getting care and support for these problems early is essential to help prevent them from getting worse or interfering with growth and learning.
