Community Champions 

Community leaders in mental health, law enforcement, government, and various non-profit organizations have joined our campaign as community champions for youth mental health. They support our ambitious expansion in Madison to transform health care for regional children and teens. These champions have said:

"YES, I support our kids struggling with mental health challenges and understand the critical need for additional behavioral health services in our region!"
