SAMHSA’s Resource Center to Promote Acceptance,
Dignity and Social Inclusion Associated with
Mental Health (ADS Center)



SAMHSA funds support and enhance the Campaign for Mental Health Recovery (CMHR) through the development of State outreach and community-based efforts, mental health education, and social inclusion activities. Awards support State efforts to promote and expand the campaign. Specifically, they are used to provide statewide consumer/survivor-operated organizations with infrastructure development for campaign implementation through needed technical assistance and training and to provide resources to educate, maintain, and expand statewide activities to support the Campaign's social inclusion efforts.

Through a selective award process in 2007 and 2008, 23 organizations received funding to develop and implement their projects.

The 2010 CMHR Awards application period is now open. The Project Guide and accompanying application documents are now available.

If you have questions about the 2010 CMHR Awards, please contact the CMHR Liaison Ruth Montag at
