We're so glad you found us!


We are very proud to announce that Maryland’s Children’s Mental Health Matters! Campaign is a finalist for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMSHA) 2014 Excellence in Community Communications and Outreach (ECCO) Recognition Program! The Campaign is nominated in two categories for our 2013 efforts! We are one of three finalists in the Audience: Professionals category and Strategy: Media Outreach category. The category Audience: Professionals, showcases the Campaign's School Champions partnerships. In 2013 we were fortunate to have Dr. Lillian Lowery, MSDE State Superintendent, record a video that encouraged all of Maryland’s schools to partner with the Children’s Mental Health Matters! Campaign to help to raise awareness about the importance of each child’s mental health. We had close to 60 schools join the Campaign in 2013. The category Strategy: Media Outreach, nominates the Campaign’s efforts to raise awareness and offer resources to families in Maryland. We partnered with WMAR to participate in Housecalls on May 9, 2013. The live hour and a half segment featured five interviews with experts and a phone bank so viewers could call in and ask questions. We received 16 phone calls during the show.
