Family and Community Partnership

Family and Community Partnership

The purpose of Gallia-Vinton’s ESC Family and Community Partnership is to provide our stakeholders with a network of community resources, partners, and support services for our students and families.

"Children's mental health has been one of the least talked about issues in pediatrics.
With the creation of On Our Sleeves, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, America’s largest network of pediatric behavioral health treatment providers and researchers and home to the Big Lots Behavioral Health Pavilion, is determined to give this cause a voice.

Because children don’t wear their thoughts on their sleeves, together we must break stigmas and educate families and advocates about children’s mental health. Our mission is to provide every family in America access to free, evidenced-based educational resources, powered by the  experts from Nationwide Children’s and our collaborating partners. We support access by connecting families to trusted local resources – because no family should struggle alone."
