Children suffering with mental illness are often hidden from view because of social stigma, misconceptions, shame and lack of adequate health care.
Our children need help. Each day, young people suffer without adequate mental health services. The Young Minds Project is a collaborative effort designed to provide a new level of resources and treatment to the youth of Central Illinois. Together, we can reshape the mental healthcare landscape and create a brighter future for our children.
"We will only be able to solve the behavioral health crisis by taking action."
