Outreach Services

KIDTHINK provides mental health outreach services for children ages 12 and under and their families with a primary focus on working with parents, educators, pediatricians, coaches and the ​community surrounding the child, so they are better equipped to identify and support children going through mental health challenges or with mental illnesses.

  • Anxiety
