May 1-7 is Children’s Mental Health Awareness week.


Did you know that 1 in 5 children have a mental health disorder?  Those children who appear healthy on the outside suffer mental health problems on the inside.  

Did you know 75-80% of children and youth in need of mental health services do not receive them?  Treatment of mental health disorders can prevent school drop out, substance use, juvenile justice involvement and homelessness.  

May 1-7 is Children’s Mental Health Awareness week.  If you have questions about mental health issues or need assistance in finding mental health services for your child, contact our MATCh program at 715-552-1365 or match@frcec.org
