Powerful Support for Families Changes Lives
By Amanda E. Hastings, Psy.D., Director of Behavioral Development, Early Childhood Behavioral Health Program
When a child identified in early childhood needs additional mental health care later in life, that established trust means the child and parents are more likely to seek help. It is really quite powerful.
Philanthropy helps us build trust in mental health care and break down the shame that sometimes surrounds it. We have fewer systemic barriers to helping families because we built an infrastructure for a sustainable system. Care is readily available and often free. The system changes lives and maximizes children’s potential. Being part of a positive system like this, with the resources necessary to make a difference, also helped care providers like me avoid burn out.
