Review for Childrens Health Council Inc, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I serve on the Board of CHC, in part to help pay back this incredible agency for the role they played in helping my son (now a young man) when he was still in elementary school. My son suffers from depression and anxiety and at eight years old was at risk for suicide. When no one else knew what to do, the staff at CHC, and especially at Esther B. Clark school, helped my son develop coping strategies, executive function skills, and just a new lease on life. Our family will be forever grateful for the great work CHC does.

Review for Childrens Health Council Inc, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our family is so grateful for Children's Health Council! Our young son was struggling with depression and other mental health issues and no one seemed to know how to help him. He literally could not make it through a school day at our local elementary school. Every day, I waited to get "the call" from the principal that I needed to come get my son because he was unable to cope at school. The staff at CHC, and especially at EBC School, were there to support our son and our whole family, as we worked to get help for our son's very painful suffering. They never said "we don't know what to do". Instead, they said "we'll help you find answers". Today our son is a thriving senior at a local high school, looking forward to college! Thank you, CHC, for giving our son a new lease on life!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find ways to get the word out! CHC is a treasure and more people should know about it.
