The #therapyiscool mental health action campaign is taking a trip to Miami, FL in support of community efforts to make mental health treatment more accessible to children who are victims of sexual abuse.
Proceeds from the purchases of #therapyiscool tote bags during the month of February will be donated to Kristi House Child Advocacy Center (Kristi House).
Below is a little information provided by our friends at Kristi House :
① Name of the organization: Kristi House Child Advocacy Center
② Founded in: 1995
③ Services provided: Kristi House is comprised of seven partner agencies involved in meeting the legal, medical and emotional needs of child victims of sexual abuse and sex trafficking. Kristi House is one of a very few agencies in Miami-Dade County providing specialized mental health services for child sexual abuse regardless of families’ ability to pay. Because untreated child sexual abuse often manifests itself in health, sexual and social problems throughout life, it is vitally important that Kristi House provides sexually abused children with mental health services.
④ Population served: : Kristi House serves sexually abused children by providing a community resource, a treatment center and a bridge to law enforcement. Kristi House coordinates all the services a victim and his/her family will need for the healing process.
⑤How does Kristi House use their donated funds: Donations from individuals and community groups will ensure that Kristi House and its Orlowitz-Lee Children’s Advocacy Center will be able to continue providing quality services and programs to children in Miami-Dade County.
