EveryMind recognizes that investing in our children and youth now, will mean a more vibrant, productive workforce and community moving forward. Prevention and early intervention services help us to identify and address the needs of at-risk children and their families and then provide more intensive case management and counseling when needed. We realize that mental health issues are not bound by economics or ethnicity and that’s why our services are in place for everyone. Because every mind needs support, attention, and care.
