Pending Federal Legislation Affecting Children and Mental Health

Advocating for Children and Youth

May 3, 2011, marks National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day. It is a day to focus on children, youth and young adults living with mental illness and to come together to advocate for a full array of effective services and supports for youth affected by mental illness. To date, a number of pending bills intended to improve the lives of children and families impacted by mental illness have been introduced in Congress:
  • the Mental Health in Schools Act,
  • the Achievement Through Prevention Act, and
  • the Keeping Students Safe Act.
In honor of National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day. To learn about these bills, check out this Tip Sheet from the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
