Each and every child should be able to dream big. But the sad reality for kids who live with mental health conditions is that their joyful imagination is often replaced with anxiety, sadness and trauma.
Your gift to Washburn Center for Children ensures that children struggling with depression, anxiety or trauma receive healing therapeutic services for a strong start in life.
You can make transformations possible:
Ten-year-old Jake is making friends and enjoying his new basketball team. He’s no longer verbally attacking his peers or having meltdowns in the classroom – thanks to you.
After experiencing child abuse and neglect, Rosie, now 16, is attending school regularly, getting her driver’s license and enjoying the freedom of being a teen with the support of her grandmother. She now believes she’s smart and has the tools ready to overcome obstacles – because of you.
Together, we can ensure children and families will not face mental health challenges alone.
Washburn Center for Children is a children’s mental health center, caring for a wide variety of children’s needs such as:
- attention deficit disorders
- behavioral problems
- learning difficulties
One out of five Minnesota children will experience mental health challenges, yet only 20% get the help they need. With your support, Washburn ensures caregivers have a resource to help kids who are hurting on the inside.
Thanks to you, families have hope and their children will transform their dreams into reality.
