Bringing people together to support children’s mental health.

For over a decade, Maryland has seen a marked decline in the availability of mental health and substance use services for youth and an outpouring of need. The results have been devastating. Now more than ever, we need a holistic, integrated, and comprehensive approach to youth wellbeing. 

At the 2024 MHAMD Legislative Briefing and Reception, we will be laser focused on the children’s mental health crisis in Maryland, bringing together leaders from all child-serving agencies to discuss an interagency plan that coordinates and improves services for children and youth across the state. We will also hear directly from Maryland youth about their experience with Maryland’s behavioral health system, hear from Maryland legislators about behavioral health bills they’re introducing, and much more!
