Help a child tomorrow!

The past year and a half brought tremendous hardship to our children and their families. Our children need mental health support now more than ever. 

Your gift to Park Nicollet Foundation will help provide students access to no-fee mental health services, grief counseling support and death-related crises response support for school staff – at a time when these services are needed most.

When a child is struggling, it can drastically impact their family, school attendance, grades, extracurricular activities, friendships, self-worth and sleep. Mental health problems—whether it’s grief, trauma, stress or anxiety—can derail a child’s development, often causing irreparable life-long harm.

For more than 25 years, Park Nicollet Foundation has provided innovative, collaborative school-based programs to provide children and families necessary access to grief, mental health and well-being support—all sustained with charitable donations from generous people like you. 

We partner with Park Nicollet Health Services, 17 school districts, 97 public schools and area nonprofits to address unmet health needs and improve access to care. Your support powers:

Growing Through Grief Program

No-fee school-based counseling and crisis response is provided to elementary, middle and high school students who have experienced the death of a family member or friend.

  • Students learn about grief, develop coping skills and build resiliency through weekly group and one-to-one counseling sessions. 
  • Support is provided weekly during the school year giving students access to important support at key developmental waypoints in their lives. 

NOW! (No Obstacles to Well-being) Telemental Health Program

No-fee school-based mental health services are provided to students struggling with anxiety, depression, complex grief, family dysfunction, trauma and more.

  • Services are provided virtually and improve access to mental health care by eliminating barriers associated with transportation, affordability, time out of  school, parents missing work and mental health stigma. 
  • Helps to eliminate language barriers with a Spanish-speaking therapist.

Your donations have twice the impact!

Thanks to a $500,000 matching gift challenge from a generous community member, your donation will have twice the impact. Your gift to Park Nicollet Foundation in support of children’s mental health and well-being will be matched dollar for dollar, doubling the impact you make to support children and families in need.

These services are provided free of charge to each student and are 100% supported through charitable giving.  Your gift today will make a significant difference in the lives of many children in our local community.
