"We are working to to support families and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness through education."

Without support and treatment, mental health issues can negatively impact a child’s education, reduce their ability to have healthy friendships, and may increase the risk that they will use drugs and alcohol to cope with daily stressors.

Mental health providers, schools, and medical professionals are working to increase awareness of mental illness and provide necessary services in the community, but it is not enough.

Parents and adult caregivers have an important role in a child’s life - that’s why Strive Family Resources offers free access to accurate, timely, and relevant information to help you better understand your kids.


"Families needs accurate information from trustworthy sources."

This very simple statement has been the foundation for Erika's work as a mental health provider since 2009, and led to the creation of the Strive Family Resources website in 2019.
