Substantial public input was sought and received at multiple steps in the process of developing the action agenda for children's mental health. Special thanks to all who contributed to the national dialogue on children's mental health, especially to:

  • All who provided input through the World Wide Web and the mail;
  • Participants at the Surgeon General's Listening Session; and
  • Participants at the Surgeon General's Conference on Children's Mental Health, especially the youth whose input reminded us of the critical need to listen to their perspectives.

Special thanks to the leadership and staff of the Office of Public Health and Science for their enthusiastic support of this interdepartmental effort.
