Get Trained Adult Health Coaches to Work with Kids

According to a recent report, the number of children and adolescents experiencing mental health problems has increased significantly during the coronavirus pandemic.

This is not surprising, given the stress and uncertainty that come with the virus. However, it is important to note that there are ways to help ease these problems.

Denver's Children's Hospital has received a $100,000 donation to train motivational health coaches.

These coaches will work with kids to help them cope with their feelings and develop healthy coping mechanisms.

The goal is to provide children with the support they need to get through this difficult time.

With the help of these trained coaches, kids will be better equipped to handle the challenges of the pandemic and emerge from it stronger and more resilient. 

Address Pediatric Mental Health Issues in Denver

It is estimated that one in five children in the United States suffers from a mental health disorder, and the rates are even higher in some urban areas.

In Denver, Colorado, nearly a quarter of all children are living with a mental health condition. Unfortunately, only a fraction of these children is receiving the treatment they need.

The reasons for this are complex, but they include a lack of access to mental health services, stigma, and a lack of awareness about the signs and symptoms of mental illness.

However, there are signs that the situation is slowly improving. In recent years, several organizations have been working to increase access to mental health services for children in Denver.

In addition, there has been an increase in public awareness about pediatric mental health issues.

As a result, more and more families are seeking help for their children. While there is still much work to be done, these efforts are beginning to make a difference in the lives of Denver's youngest residents.

Tackle the Growing Trend of Substance Abuse

It is no secret that substance abuse is a growing epidemic.

Every day, more and more people are succumbing to addiction, whether it be to alcohol, drugs, or both.

The resulting impact on families and communities can be devastating.

However, there is hope. By working together, we can tackle the problem of substance abuse and help those who are struggling to get the treatment they need.

One way to do this is by raising awareness of the issue.

Too often, people are reluctant to talk about substance abuse because they feel ashamed or embarrassed.

However, by starting the conversation, we can begin to break down the stigma and make it easier for people to seek help.

In addition, we can support legislation that ensures access to treatment and recovery services. By taking action, we can make a difference in the fight against substance abuse.
