Mission

Washburn Center for Children nurtures every child and family's well-being and full potential through transformative children's mental health care. With the vast COVid-19 impacts, families are more isolated, struggling with job loss and economic stressors, and deeply affected by the pervasive anxiety that we are all experiencing. Our team moved rapidly to ensure we would continue to support the health and well-being of our staff and the children and families who they serve. In mid-March, we suspended face-to-face sessions at our sites and transitioned to phone-based and teletherapy for all services. We have capacity for new children and families who need stabilizing therapeutic services because of intensified stress, anxiety and depression.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.
