Raising Awareness and Funds for Teen Mental Health
CHC is honored to announce our partnership with the Michael Harris Foundation to create The Michael Harris Foundation Fund at CHC. This new partnership will provide much needed treatment, training and education to teens struggling with anxiety and depression and the mental health professionals who help them. The late Michael Harris devoted his life to the mental wellness of teens, and his memory lives on through the legacy built by the Michael Harris Foundation.
On August 26, 2018, the Michael Harris Foundation will host the 3rd Annual SteelMike Shootout Basketball Tournament benefiting the Michael Harris Foundation Fund at CHC. The day will feature 3-on-3 basketball, spectator games and raffles. All proceeds will directly support CHC’s Teen Mental Health Initiative by providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) training and education—impacting thousands of youth.
DBT is the gold-standard in evidence-based treatment for severe anxiety and depression, suicidal ideation and self-harm, and is the cornerstone of CHC’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Training more clinicians in DBT is the first step in providing more kids, teens, educators and families with these life-changing (often life-saving) skills. By directly impacting clinicians, the Michael Harris Foundation Fund at CHC is honoring those who are on the ground working 1:1 with teens, continuing Michael’s important work.
