We work toward mental and behavioral health in our community by expanding access to mental health services for children and youth.

The Foundation works to expand access to mental and behavioral health services for children and youth by supporting organizations that provide counseling and therapy to families at the local level.

The Foundation supports organizations that provide traditional and nontraditional therapies with an emphasis on trauma-informed care and measurement-based care. Additionally, the Foundation is interested in early diagnosis of mental health disorders through the integration of screenings performed by a child’s primary care provider during annual check-ups.

The Foundation supports organizations that provide counseling and therapy in community-friendly, easily-accessible spaces. The Foundation also seeks to partner with organizations that provide therapeutic services to individuals coping with more complex mental health conditions.

The Foundation’s focus in mental and behavioral health is primarily:

  • Utilize measurement-based care for treatment of depression and other mental health conditions
  • Access to mental health care in diverse settings such as schools and primary care providers
