Unmasking the Epidemic, a free virtual event by Kids’ Minds Matter educated the Southwest Florida community of the alarming pediatric mental health crisis faced by children and families today, while also providing the resources currently available in the region for those seeking help. The event, which featured personal stories from parents and child advocates, testimonials from local healthcare leaders, and strategic plans for improving access to care in the region, inspired significant donations raising to expand pediatric mental health programs. As a result of the event, inspired individuals continue to make gifts, and Lee Health anticipates the event’s impact will exceed $1M.
It’s not too late to make a lifesaving gift to help our children in need. Donations will help Golisano Children’s Hospital and Lee Health expand the availability and accessibility of mental health programs and services for area youth and their families.
