2023 Fall Luncheon

2900 Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park, California
12:00 pm Reception · 12:30 pm Lunch and Panel Discussion

About the Event

Our kids are stressed out, and mental health challenges are on the rise. Award-winning author Donna Jackson Nakazawa joins the Child Mind Institute to share her insights into the causes of this pervasive stress, how it can derail healthy emotional development and — most importantly — how strong family bonds and community connections can help kids thrive despite the challenges.

This year’s Fall Luncheon featured Donna Jackson Nakazawa as she discussed her book Girls on the Brink: Helping Our Daughters Thrive in an Era of Increased Anxiety, Depression, and Social Media.

Examples of how your gift can make a difference:

All funds raised support the Child Mind Institute’s efforts to improve mental health care for children and families through clinical care, research, and public education.

Provides comprehensive mental health and learning evaluations for three children through our Healthy Brain Network study, including information required to request an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) at school.

Supports five kids attending our summer program for children who have ADHD or who need help with behavioral, learning, and social issues.

Trains two educators on our mental health skill-building curriculum, helping them support up to 50 students per year.

Supports one child’s participation in our Social Anxiety Groups, where they learn coping skills to manage anxiety and practice interacting in a group setting.
