Did you know?
One in five children suffer from a mental health challenge. Yet less than 20 percent of those affected get the supports and services they need
Over 50 percent of students aged 14 or older with severe mental health challenges drop out of high school – the highest dropout rate of any disability group.
Mental health challenges get better with care that is individualized, family driven, youth guided, trauma-informed, coordinated and comprehensive.
