Give to the Max Day is Minnesota’s single most impactful day of giving for nonprofits statewide. Join us in celebrating this important day as we place extra emphasis on supporting students in our local communities! Most children and youth do not receive the care they need, and our School-Linked Mental Health Services program is changing that with your help.
“Prior to the pandemic, an estimated 20% of children experienced emotional and/or behavioral health needs per year, with an estimated 50% of these children not receiving mental health services,” says Sara Benson, Operations Director at People Incorporated. "The stress and loss experienced by children, and the overall mental health need, has increased during the past year and a half."
Our therapists, social workers, and mental health professionals operate their own outpatient mental health clinic in the school within a private, safe space. Therapy is provided onsite, making it more accessible for busy families, reducing variables that may prevent individuals from receiving care. People Incorporated has therapists in 25 schools across four districts. These services provide an efficient solution for districts overwhelmed with the demand for social and behavioral health services.
Our schools and youth have proven resilient as they continue to adjust, and we believe now is a crucial time to provide additional support.
Thank you for making an impact.
