outreach programs

MHAMD’s programs of education and community outreach seek to reach all of Maryland’s diverse communities. 

From our Children’s Mental Health Matters awareness campaign and our older adult training programs, we provide mental health information to young and old. 

Our Spanish language Kids on the Block puppet troupe provides education to young children and families in English and Spanish and we continue to increase the array of print and web resources available in other languages. 

Through our partnership with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to implement Mental Health First Aid training, the basic facts about mental illness and effective crisis management are being provided to colleges, police, teachers, and more in every corner of the State.
