Educating, informing, and updating the community is a big part of our advocacy work. Children’s mental and behavioral health care is a complex topic that deserves a robust platform. Through the following resources we share kids’ stories, raise awareness about areas of need, and present ways to take action and become an advocate.

Founded in 2016, Kids’ Minds Matter is a unified movement in Southwest Florida dedicated to advancing pediatric mental and behavioral health services. By developing clinical pathways to screen and treat patients, enhancing public awareness through education, and lobbying for systemic change and sustainable funding, Kids’ Minds Matter aims to align mental health providers, local agencies, the judicial system, law enforcement, schools and faith-based organizations. Kids’ Minds Matter is managed through the Lee Health Foundation.
