If you’ve been reading the blog for a while you have probably noticed that I am a HUGE advocate for organizations that help families and children in their struggles with mental health. Our family knows first hand how important it is to have resources available to you when you are in crisis. It is imperative that information — that proverbial “village of support” — that I am always speaking of is not hidden in the dark corners of the yellow pages but up front and available for all to access.
The RBC Children’s Mental Health Project
I had heard of the RBC Children’s Mental Health Project however it wasn’t until last week that I was able to connect with someone from RBC to hear more about the great initiatives that they are implementing. So, what is the RBC Children’s Mental Health Project you may ask? Here’s the answer:
All kids should feel healthy inside and out. That’s why we created the RBC Children’s Mental Health Project, which has provided more than $16 million to organizations dedicated to providing early intervention, increasing public awareness and reducing the stigma of mental illness.
Through the RBC Children’s Mental Health Project, we are helping a network of active and concerned organizations, hospitals and associations dedicated to helping kids be healthy inside and out.
Just take a look at all of the great organizations that RBC is involved with.
A big piece of the mental health puzzle is figuring out where everyone stands on the topic. We can’t move forward unless we are all working toward a common goal — helping our children and accepting the fact that our children are struggling.
