Campaign for Mental Health Recovery

The Campaign for Mental Health Recovery (CMHR) is a national public education effort that improves the general understanding of mental illness, promotes recovery, and encourages help-seeking behaviors across the age span. With grassroots support from States and community organizations, the CMHR accomplishes its goals through TV and radio Public Service Announcements, a Web site, and print and transit advertising.

The ADS Center supports the CMHR by offering:

Regional Forums

Regional Forums provide a way for State coordinators and partners to connect with and learn from one another.


Webcasts educate State coordinators and partners on important topics related to the CMHR.


SAMHSA offers funding to support CMHR activities among consumer-run organizations in States across the country. Between 2007 and 2008, 23 organizations received awards for their projects.
