That’s why we’re calling November 28 #pathtoPATHtuesday. Every gift to United Way Fox Cities on Giving Tuesday will benefit United Way’s PATH (Providing Access to Healing) for Students. This program provides mental health therapy in schools for local students experiencing barriers to care at community-based clinics.
Help us create a path to PATH – a path to healing – and show young people that we care. Scroll down to see how you can join the cause.
As a social worker in a local district school around 2008, I witnessed many teens struggling with anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder, along with all other normal teenager things. Agencies had long wait lists, families had issues with insurance, and students faced challenges with transportation to appointments that were scheduled in the middle of a school day causing them to miss multiple classes.
The PATH program continues to be active in many schools throughout the Fox Valley and wouldn’t be possible without the leadership and strong financial support provided by United Way Fox Cities.
A heartfelt THANK YOU to Bob and countless others for your dedication to our youth ensuring barriers are removed from mental health care access.
We encourage you to be creative! Here are some ideas to rally behind #pathtoPATHtuesday:
