About the Event

This year’s Child Mind Institute annual Spring Luncheon featured New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Wallace as we delved into the important question – How can parents and children overcome toxic achievement culture?

Jennifer Wallace engaged in an illuminating conversation with Dr. Matthew Cruger of the Child Mind Institute, and our dynamic moderator, Ali Wentworth.

Examples of how your gift can make a difference:

All funds raised support the Child Mind Institute’s mission to improve mental health care for children and families through evidence-based care, education, and science.

Allows the School and Community Programs team to train 10 educators on our K–12 mental health skill-building curriculum, helping educators provide prevention and support to hundreds of students per year.

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.
