Teen Mental Health Initiative

Teen Mental Health Initiative

CHC is leveraging our skills, expertise, and relationships to create a web of mental health support for teens, their families and the community.

The Initiative’s Goals:

  • Remove stigma
  • Increase awareness
  • Connect those in need to those who can help
  • Reduce teen suicide

In order to deliver on these goals, CHC will engage in three specific types of actions:

1. Convening

Engage and mobilize the community to leverage our collective strengths for teens

2. Education

Deliver a variety of mental health education options for parents, teens and educators

3. Therapy

Offer a broad range of affordable teen therapy options for mental health

CHC specializes in Anxiety & Depression, has a long track record of success with community education and therapy, and we’ve established strong community partnerships. Our agency is well poised to take a leadership role and make a real difference by launching the Teen Mental Health Initiative. Download a PDF version of the Teen Mental Health Initiative Overview.
