Child and Adolescent Mental Health


May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time that we renew our commitment to serving children, families, and communities affected by mental illness and/or a traumatic event. If you know someone affected by mental illness or trauma, consider sharing these resources:

  • The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) provides education and support to families affected by mental illness.

  • The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) has information about childhood trauma, a behavioral health treatment services locator, and many other resources.

  • The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Columbia University Medical Center provides a variety of resources, treatment options, and research studies for children and families affected by mental illness. Call 212-305-6001 to find out more.
