The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 22, 2018

Canopy Children’s Solutions serves over 5,000 Mississippi children and families every year. Since 1912, Canopy has served the greatest needs of children and families. Canopy has flourished to become the state’s most comprehensive provider of children’s behavioral health, educational, and social service solutions. Today,one in five children in the U.S. suffers from a mental health disorder, yet less than 20 percent ever receive treatment. Additionally, one in 59 children today are diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Sadly as the occurrence rates continue to increase, the availability of quality resources for these children and families remain extremely limited.
