The Foundation is working toward mental and behavioral health in our community by expanding access to mental health services for children and youth through integrated, primary healthcare settings and counseling and therapeutic sites that are available to families.
The Foundation supports organizations that work across the spectrum of mental health care and make it more accessible to youth. Foundation grantmaking addresses awareness, reducing stigma, and making mental health care accessible. Of particular importance is access to screening.
For youth and families that need mental health care, the Foundation supports organizations that provide counseling and therapeutic services, especially in community-friendly spaces.
For more complex mental health conditions, the Foundation funds access to intensive therapeutic services.
The Foundation’s focus in mental health is primarily:
Funding to support and expand the Pediatric Mood Disorders Network which connects youth with mental health screening and measurement-based care.
Funding to support low-cost mental health counseling services for youth and families.
Funding to support suicide prevention through education programming and community resources around mental health.
