The Child Mind Institute is an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Our teams work every day to deliver the highest standards of care, advance the science of the developing brain and empower parents, professionals, and policymakers to support children when and where they need it most. Together with our supporters, we're helping children reach their full potential in school and in life. We share all of our resources freely and do not accept any funding from the pharmaceutical industry.
The Child Mind Institute is excited to expand our services to the west coast and specifically to the San Francisco Bay Area. Our west coast operation will tackle barriers to mental healthcare by providing best-in-class clinical care including evaluations and intensive, evidence-based treatments tailored to each child's individual needs. We will expand access to services through financial aid funding for patient care and free online resources for parents, educators, and policymakers. The Child Mind Institute is deeply committed to partnering with the Bay Area community through our school-based services, public education events, and community-based mental health trainings.
Since our founding in 2009, the Child Mind Institute has treated over 8,500 patients from 42 nations, 48 states, and Washington DC. We have provided over $6.1 million in financial aid so that families can access our care. Through our funded school and community programs, over 4,000 parents and school staff have received training on student mental health and behavior management and over 7,300 students have participated in our trauma treatment groups and resilience-building interactive series. We share all of our resources freely through childmind.org including our widely used Symptom Checker.
