The Alliance for Children's Mental Health (ACMH) seeks to ensure, through collective advocacy, that all children and youth have access to quality mental health services that are family-centered and culturally responsive.
ACMH grew out of the Keep the Promise (KTP) Coalition Children’s Committee which was formed in 2010 to focus on children’s issues within KTP. In 2015, the KTP Children’s Committee re-formed itself to become ACMH and an independent entity.
