We inspire hope and strengthen lives by offering high quality mental health, employment and housing services. Our vision is communities where all children, youth, adults and families experience mental wellness, financial stability and a safe place to live.
Children’s Mental Health Centre
We don’t often think of children as struggling with mental health. But the fact is, almost 20% of children in Ontario under the age of 19 suffer with a mental, emotional, or behavioural disorder that seriously affects all aspects of their lives. Adolescence is hard enough, but add the difficulty of struggling with mental health and it becomes a real challenge – both for the children and their families.
Identifying and treating mental health issues early on is crucial. If mental illness is ignored, youth face the risk of school failure, family conflicts, drug abuse, become violent and, in some cases, even suicide.
Lutherwood is a vital resource for parents and their children struggling with mental health. Through Lutherwood’s expertise, parents and young people find the support, information and treatment they need.
We know that young people can reach their potential – even with the challenge of mental illness. Together, we’ll help them develop skills to build a strong future.
Be a champion of Lutherwood. One million dollars is needed annually to support the various programs we provide, especially those without funding from our government partners. Every year the Lutherwood Child and Family Foundation raises additional funds to support vulnerable members of our community to build more hopeful and productive futures.
You can get involved by becoming an annual donor, set up a pledge to give monthly, make a planned gift through a bequest or insurance policy, make a gift of shares, sponsor an event or host a 3rd party fundraiser.
Thanks to your generous donations, we can ensure that young teens suffering with a mental, emotional or behavioural disorder can stay at Lutherwood and continue to get the support and encouragement they need to rise above their challenges and develop skills to build a strong future.
