Advancing the Mental Wellbeing of All Kids

Did you know: 1 in 5 children has a significantly impairing mental disorder, yet less than half get the treatment they need?

At Children’s Hospital New Orleans, we’re on a mission to change that by building a community where all kids receive the specialized care and support they need.

Mental Health Disorders affect 1 in 5 kids

The #High5 Project is about spreading kindness, boosting confidence, providing support, sharing resources, improving care, and building a community focused on mental wellbeing for all kids.

Why do you #High5?

Our #High5 campaign aims to ensure that 5 out of 5 kids with mental and behavioral disorders get the help they need and deserve. To join the movement, please email high5project@lcmchealth.org.
