Our Mission

Changing mental health for children and youth by empowering families in every way.

Our Vision

Choose Mental Health is the national voice for children’s mental health. Delivering stigma-free hope and a clear path to long term wellness.

Our Priorities

We are THE voice for children’s mental health in America. Through fundraising and awareness, we are making mental health treatment possible and affordable at the highest therapeutic levels. Providing access and resources to parents and caregivers who don’t know where to find it, is powerful. Solving problems for children and youth that were unsolvable, is priceless.

Family centered treatment. Finding programs that heals not only the student but includes the family is powerful in the healing process.

Learning Center. In an industry that is clouded by shame and fear, Choose Mental Health is providing answers, insights and options that take away shame and fear and replace them with conversations, answers and hope. This process begins with a library of learning taught by licensed professionals who specialize in helping children and youth.

Self-Help Resources

Need more help? Each family is treated with dignity and respect regardless of need or ability to pay. It is important to know that Choose Mental Health provides resources for families including our network of providers to address the most complex cases. Not everyone will qualify for placement and that might be good. Working with therapists and clinical professionals at home is always a great option if the student is seeing success.
