Healthy Kids Movement

Strengthening youth and families through leadership

The Healthy Kids Movement (HKM) connects children and families to mental and behavioral health services. HKM removes the stigma of receiving help by having therapists meet families where they are. Children participate HKM and receive services during other Banisters Leadership Academy programming both in school and in an after-school, evening setting. There are group facilitated support activities as well as individual therapy to address a specific need. Both the child and parent/guardians are eligible to receive services. Therapy is provided individually initially, and once progress has been made, family therapy is available. The Healthy Kids Initiative is a mobile therapy support program. It makes it easy for marginalized populations to access the services needed to get healthy. Brain health is just as important as physical health. We are changing the narrative on mental health in our community.
