May is Mental Health Awareness Month
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one in five people live with a mental health condition. Recent national events have increased awareness of various mental illnesses.While awareness increases, there is still a stigma that exists to those who suffer and many suffer in silence.
Touchstone's evidence-based programs help families find strategies to become more effective with their children and adolescents. Touchstone has numerous programs that help children obtain the skills to live productive and responsible lives. Our staff provides treatment for the child and the family so that all can work together effectively for long-term success. Programs are provided to children 0-18 years of age.
