Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin: Mental Health Awareness Week
From Oct. 10 to 12, 2021, the lights on the Hoan Bridge will display different designs to continue to raise awareness of the mental and behavioral health crisis facing our kids.
The need for pediatric mental and behavioral health care is great, and what we do for our kids now will have a lasting impact. If not addressed, mental and behavioral health issues in childhood can have a significant effect — sometimes serious and irreversible — on a child’s mental development, physical health and future well-being long into adulthood.
To inspire others to address the crisis, Jeff Yabuki, the former CEO of Fiserv, Inc., and his family are currently matching donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $5 million, for the Change the Checkup Challenge. Donations will help transform how mental and behavioral health services are provided at every Children’s Wisconsin primary care office and urgent care location.
