Our patients, parents and advocates are some of the bravest people we know. Their stories shine a powerful light on the challenges children face when they struggle with a mental health or learning disorder. Their pain is palpable, but so is their progress. And, their victories should be celebrated! We invite you to watch the videos and read the stories below — and then share them with your friends and followers on social media. Together, we can start a new conversation and change the way we treat children struggling with mental health and learning disorders.
