We wanted to let you know about the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry’s (AACAP) current Call to Action for Children’s Mental Health. Please see below for a summary and link to their petition.
AACAP Call to Action for Children’s Mental Health
Despite increased public attention, Congressional focus on the prevention, early identification, and treatment of childhood mental illness has stalled. During AACAP’s Annual Meeting (October 22-26), join your colleagues in urging Congress not to lose sight of the needs of children with mental illnesses. Sign our petition now at http://www.aacap.org/take_action!
Please join us (AACAP) in making sure children’s mental health does not fall into the shadows!
