Mental Health America

Mental Health America, started in 1909, is the nation’s oldest advocacy organization focused on mental health conditions and their impact on society.

As a parent advocate have you checked of the items on our "Back to School" list? Providing support and guidance for a child with a mental health condition is a critical part of recovery throughout the year. Download the list here: www.mentalhealtha...

It's important to think about your child's emotional health. Remember that children may not only be excited about the new school year, but also apprehensive about all the changes that come with growing up. Their emotional health is tied into their mental health and as their parent, you are the person they look to for support and guidance. www.mentalhealtha...

Being Bullied Sucks! It’s hurtful, scary and confusing. When bullying is aggressive and physical, it can be dangerous. When it’s emotional – like name calling, or cyberbullying – it’s easy to feel alone. If you’re being bullied or see someone being bullied, MHA has tips for you. www.mentalhealtha...

Bullying is painful, lasting and related to low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, anger, and other mental and physical health problems. Because of the increased risk of suicide associated with bullying--for victims and perpetrators alike--open dialogue and support are crucial in ensuring safety for our children and teenagers. www.mentalhealtha...

Mental health problems are nothing to be ashamed of. As many as one in five children and adolescents may have a mental health problem that can be identified and treated. One in ten may have a problem so severe it interferes with their ability to function in school, at home and at play. www.mentalhealtha...

Just as you can help prevent a child from catching a cold or breaking a bone, you can help prevent a child from having mental health problems. We need to treat a child’s mental health just like we do their physical health, by giving it thought and attention and, when needed, professional help. www.mentalhealtha...

Take time every day to talk to your child about what's going on at school. Your child's mental health matters. www.mentalhealtha...
