Children's Mental Health Acceptance Week

The National Federation of Families took an important step to advance social justice for families: launching the first national Children’s Mental Health Acceptance Week.  

As an organization focused on families with children who experience mental health and/or substance use across the lifespan, we believe acceptance more directly combats discrimination, prejudice, and subconscious bias. Awareness isn’t enough – but Acceptance demands we advocate and act to change attitudes, behaviors, and systems. Acceptance is social justice. 

In 2022, the National Federation of Families took an important step to advance social justice for families: launching the first national Children’s Mental Health Acceptance Week. This year, Children’s Mental Health Acceptance Week returns for its second year from Sunday, May 7th – Saturday, May13th, 2023. This uplifting campaign allows all of us to celebrate children of any age while promoting the importance of their mental health as well as their need for services and acceptance that support recovery, resilience, and success for children and their families.
