APA is among the sponsors of Speak Up For Kids, a national public education and outreach campaign, launched in May that connects parents and teachers with local mental health professionals and Web-based resources. During Mental Health Awareness Week, May 6–12, more than 100 APA members hosted Stand Up For Kids information sessions in their communities.

APA is co-sponsoring the campaign with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Child Mind Institute and the Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, among others. For more information and outreach materials, go to Child Mind Institute.
