NAMI's Child and Adolescent Action Center (CAAC) works to improve the lives of children, youth and young adults impacted by mental illness and their families. CAAC offers resources and technical assistance to families, child-serving professionals and youth and young adults. CAAC advocates for early identification of emerging mental illness and early intervention, along with a full array of effective services and supports in every state and community across the country.
Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, May 4-10, helps raise awareness around children's mental health and May 8 marks National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day. Join NAMI to focus on children and youth living with mental illness with awareness activities and resources.
