The following thank you note was received recently from Adolescent Wellness, one of the many area organizations which benefit from your generosity. Thank you, Hills Church.
Your donation to Adolescent Wellness Inc. will be spent toward our goal of helping youth to grow into maturity without developing anxiety or depression and to recognize and seek help for symptoms much earlier.
We still help create and promote curriculum locally– the newest being “Behavioral Health Training for Pediatricians”– as we did for teens with the Interfaith Gathering Round Our Wellness program which was recognized at the State House. One change is making resources universally available, well beyond Wellesley, and several of the Siddi hostels the congregation supports have implemented the program.
Depression occurs in youth, 1 in 5 cases are preventable, and referral is essential.
