Navigating the Maze: An assessment of mental health resources for children

From 2016 to 2017, a philanthropic partnership between Foundation For The Carolinas, Children’s Medical Fund and Mitchell’s Fund funded a study and published an assessment of mental health resources for children and adolescents in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.  The study and report were commissioned in response to the Leading on Opportunity task force report recommendation that community leaders develop efforts focused on addressing mental health issues and/or reducing negative mental health impact of children living in low-opportunity environments in an effort to positively impact their upward mobility in life.

 

Thompson Child and Family Focus

In 2018, Thompson Child and Family Focus began implementing many of the strategies and recommendations outlined in the Navigating the Maze report.  In 2019, a funding partnership between Foundation For The Carolinas, Children’s Medical Fund and Mitchell’s Fund provided a grant for the third therapy program developed at Thompson following the release of our report.  The therapy program is trauma informed, gender-specific, culturally competent treatment program designed specifically for the adolescent girls in residential care at Thompson.
