The national event will explore how communities around the country are connecting children, youth, and young adults with mental and substance use disorders—and their families—to behavioral health services and supports. Youth and family leaders, educators, law enforcement officials, and behavioral health professionals will share strategies for addressing barriers to behavioral health care access.

Also at the event, SAMHSA will present a Special Recognition Award to this year’s Honorary Chairperson, Reid Ewing—best known for his role as Dylan on “Modern Family”—for his efforts to promote openness and educate others about mental health.
