In many communities, there is a lack of understanding and resources to support mental health, which means problems frequently go unnoticed or unaddressed until they rise to the level of crisis. Just as the stability of a table is what makes it functional, the mental health of children is what enables them to function well in all areas of life. A wobbly table can be fixed with anything from a sugar packet to a team of specialists, just as the interventions needed to support the mental health of a child can vary from simple to complex.
Our health and behavioral health services support children and adolescents who have experienced poverty, crises, abuse, and family stress in their home and community to help them manage their challenges in the context of their everyday lives. Using evidence-based approaches and employing highly-trained medical and mental health professionals, our programs meet people where they are, and create stability as they address their health needs.
