The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) are offering a virtual training for parents, caregivers, and families on the mental health needs of children.

ACF and SAMHSA are both committed to improving behavioral health (i.e., mental health, substance use) for children, youths, and families. As part of our agencies’ ongoing behavioral health efforts, this March 22nd virtual training aims to provide parents and caregivers with the information and resources to recognize, manage, and support their children’s mental health needs.

Event facilitators and speakers will include January Contreras (ACF Assistant Secretary), Miriam Delphin-Rittmon (SAMHSA Assistant Secretary), Dr. Sunny Patel (Senior Medical Advisor, SAMHSA Center for Mental Health), Dr. Gary Blau (Senior Advisor, SAMHSA), Lauren Behsudi (Senior Advisor, ACF), David Armstrong (parent and caregiver advocate), and Arc Telos Saint Amour (Executive Director, Youth MOVE National).

We understand that parents and caregivers play a vital role in the lives of children, families, and communities. This virtual training will provide parents and caregivers with tools and skills to support their children.

The ACF and SAMHSA virtual training will be held on March 22, 2023, from 6:00 to 7:15 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time). You can register for the training via this Web link.
