Health Disparities Info Outreach: Expanding Children's Mental Healthcare in Butte/SilverBow

Mental health resources for children have been identified in the Butte/SilverBow community as representative of a health disparity. This project utilizes the community's Early Childhood Coalition (the Butte Community Council) and Children?s Mental Health Committee to provide guidance and respond to this disparity through focus group meetings relating to children?s mental health services. These groups will meet to discuss viable options for our community and advocate awareness. The project will promote existing community mental health resources for children, as well as develop and promote resources that will raise awareness of a mental health disparity regarding children, through promotional activities, including radio ads, posters, flyers, bench ads, articles, and community meetings.
