As you may know, I recently joined The Clear View School and Day Treatment Center as the Development Officer. At the time, I was not aware that one in five children have some type of mental disorder. I did understand that children's development of social, emotional and behavioral well-being is central to their overall healthy development.
That's why, for more than 50 years, The Clear View School has integrated academic and therapeutic elements into their program for students living with mental illness. Each family becomes involved in the process, creating a unified and holistic treatment program.
Our upcoming 5K Run/Walk along the beautiful, historic Ossining Aqueduct is one way in which we raise funds and create awareness for this pervasive issue. Thank you for anything that you can do to help.
