Bringing kids' mental and behavioral health into the light
Kids across Wisconsin are facing a mental and behavioral health crisis. They have high rates of anxiety, depression and suicide and not enough access to care. But with your help, we can change that.
At Children's Wisconsin, we believe caring for a child's mental and behavioral health is just as important as caring for their physical health. We’re inviting you to help us Shine Through and light a path forward to better mental and behavioral health for kids in our state.
It’s time to Shine Through
Shine Through brings to life the important work Children’s Wisconsin is doing to detect needs sooner, reduce stigma and improve access to care for kids with mental and behavioral health needs.Learn more
