CHANGING LIVES BY IMPROVING CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH
Wisconsin Family Ties (WFT) is the only statewide, parent-run organization in Wisconsin working with families that include children with social, emotional or behavioral challenges. We walk beside families to provide emotional support while helping to navigate the complex service and treatment systems with which they are involved .
Nia wasn’t welcome in social situations. She was failing school.
Her mental health symptoms included alarming outbursts at home
and the family was losing hope. Nia needed urgent help to stop the
downward spiral of mental illness.
Wisconsin Family Ties illuminated a path to success. We walked side-by-side with the family, school, and community—teaching evidence-based practices. We created a team of helpers united in their service approach with Nia. And we ensured that Nia learned to use her own voice to get her mental health needs met.
Today Nia is on a positive path. She is engaged in school, slowly making friends, and learning to manage her symptoms. Her family can see the road to success, and finally has hope Nia can traverse it.
This holiday season, please make a difference for a child like Nia. Your gift of $25 will provide a ray of hope for a Wisconsin child struggling with mental health challenges.
