When a child’s mental health needs are unmet, it can have lifelong consequences. It affects their school, home and personal lives so it is imperative to address these issues as soon as possible.
Dayton Children's is leading advocacy and community partnerships to promote pediatric mental health by forming the Center for Pediatric Mental Health Resources.
The Center for Pediatric Mental Health Resources partners with the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Board of Montgomery County, Montgomery County Developmental Disabilities Services and the psychiatry division of Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine to provide these resources and services to the community.
By partnering with other area organizations committed to this cause, Dayton Children's is better able to determine the needs of the community and how to best meet those needs.
