In recognition of Mental Health Month, the HCMA is working to raise awareness of trauma and the impact it can have on the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of children, families, and communities. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through older adulthood.
SAMHSA’s National Helpline, 1-800-662-HELP (4357) (also known as the Treatment Referral Routing Service), or TTY: 1-800-487-4889 is a confidential, free, 24-hour-a-day, 365-day-a-year, information service, in English and Spanish, for individuals and family members facing mental and/or substance use disorders.
