Expanding Access To Mental Health Care

The US has a pediatric mental health crisis. At least 6 million children and teens were suffering from mental illness before COVID-19. Most did not have access to mental health services even then. During the pandemic, pediatric mental illness has skyrocketed, while services have stayed flat. By providing mental health training for doctors, therapists, educators, and parents, REACH increases the nation’s capacity to help children with mental health disorders.
