One Father’s Story

“A Guidepost and So Much More”

Kevin Williams was introduced to the Child Mind Institute before the birth of his second son. Since then, the resources available at have informed his parenting.

“There was a constant blast of emails full of helpful information that has allowed me to grow as a person and father and has aided me in helping my children. The articles have educated and given me new perspectives on behaviors and how to approach certain situations,” he says.

Kevin decided to donate to the Child Mind Institute to ensure that other parents like him can access free, evidence-based resources on

“The Child Mind Institute has helped me and my children, and I wanted to show my appreciation by providing what I can in a monetary form. There is no instruction book to parenting, but these resources have provided a guidepost and so much more.”

A Newly Redesigned

A Newly Redesigned

This year, the Child Mind Institute launched a redesigned website, with reorganized content that makes it easier for families and educators to find the information they’re looking for. now includes a Family Resource Center with hundreds of articles, guides, and other resources on children’s mental health and learning disorders, available in English and Spanish.

The Child Mind Institute is reaching Spanish-speakers by translating every article, guide and ask-an-expert into Spanish in the new Family Resource Center. Additionally, Spanish-speakers can follow the Child Mind Institute en español Facebook page and subscribe to our weekly Spanish newsletter offering tips for parents, caregivers and educators.

About the Child Mind Institute

Millions of children – as many as 1 in 5 – struggle with mental health or learning challenges. Fully 70% of U.S. counties do not have a single child and adolescent psychiatrist. Due to stigma, misinformation, and a lack of access to care, the average time between onset of symptoms and any treatment at all is over 8 years. Our children deserve better.

That’s why the Child Mind Institute was created.

We’re dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders by giving them the help they need. We’ve become the leading independent nonprofit in children’s mental health by providing gold-standard evidence-based care, delivering educational resources to millions of families each year, training educators in underserved communities, and developing tomorrow’s breakthrough treatments.

Together, we truly can transform children’s lives.
