Virtual Community Event

Thank you to the generous Southwest Florida community advocates who joined us on MARCH 18 in uniting as one voice for the thousands of children struggling with mental health illnesses. During this 1-hour FREE virtual event, we unmasked the mental health resources available to your family, unmasked the faces of local youth who are advocating for enhanced access to mental health care, and unmasked the change desperately needed for our children. Together, we will enhance the availability and accessibility of mental health services in our region.
