Foundation support helps to enhance the wide range of programs and services delivered through Columbia River Mental Health Services to the over 5,700 individuals of all ages that they serve each year.
Foundation funds help otherwise ineligible people receive and continue the treatment and therapy they need to truly live as positive, productive members in our community. The result is- they recover from mental illness and chemical dependency and are able to sustain employment and support their families.
Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children. This includes depression, anxiety and conduct disorders, and is often a response to challenges in their lives. Mental health services can enable children to develop the resilience, skills and strategies they need to grow into healthy adults.
Because children experience social struggles and personal challenges that can have a profound effect on the outcome of their lives, priority will always be given to support children’s programming and families with children in services.
Our children are under-served by the state of children’s mental health services across the United States. Columbia River Mental Health Services strives to connect with children where they are through school satellite outreach, a mentoring program and young adult outpatient services. When we support a child’s healthy emotional and behavioral development we empower them to achieve their full potential.
Columbia River Mental Health Foundation focuses on supporting the youth services provided by Columbia River Mental Health Services. These include the 4Results Mentoring program, the Youth Options program and emotional and behavioral support services within our local schools.
