As a mentor of at-risk teens, I see the importance of making mental health services available to children. Especially with Washburn's policy of serving anyone, regardless of his/her ability to pay. What a critical service to the community!

Washburn is a wonderful organization. It is definitely the place to go if your child needs outside emotional support. I am constantly impressed by the therapists who work for Washburn, who have not only the requisite skill but also possess an innate ability to connect with and help children cope with life's struggles and changes.
