On February 15th, Lisa Xiong, M.A., LMFT represented Change Inc. at the Mental Health Legislative Network press conference on children's mental health. Lisa shared how we have seen children increasingly struggling in schools. This is especially true for children from diverse communities as they are impacted even greater by the pandemic. Change Inc. and fellow providers are strained trying to meet the needs of children as wait lists for school-based mental health services grow. We hope that by sharing what we see everyday, we will help inform legislative action to invest in children's mental health across Minnesota.
