It should be no secret how nature helps our mental health.

                                                                                                                                  Let’s explore just a few of the ways nature and mental health are connected.

Just like anyone else, these young adults may have medical and mental health care needs. But unlike other young people, once they age out of foster care, they no longer have the same financial and emotional backing at home.

                                                                                                                                      Unfortunately, these young people rarely receive the emotional and behavioral health services they need because of a lack of insurance and family support.

To help reduce the risk for negative outcomes, such as depression, substance use and criminal behavior, it is important for communities to wrap around children with incarcerated parents.

                                                                                                                                        Custody cases can mean tough transitions for everyone involved – whether determining who the child will live with, what school district they will be enrolled in or where they will spend the holidays. With professional emotional support, you and your child can learn to cope, heal and support each other every step of the way.

                                                                                                                                          The goal in Stark County is to keep every student safe. If students don’t feel safe, they’re not able to perform at their best academically.
                                                                                                                                          • Mental & emotional support: childhood abuse & neglect
                                                                                                                                            If you know a child that has experienced or is currently experiencing abuse or neglect, it is essential that they find a path to safety right away. Help young survivors of abuse find the counseling services they need to start the journey toward recovery.
