Community Action Together for Children's Health

Our mission is to empower families to foster resilience and prioritize mental health and emotional wellness in their children through educational programming, access to resources, and peer support.

Our Kids' Mental Health Matters

Welcome to CATCH

We are a community of parents who have come together to help others find the tools and resources to support their children's mental health by sharing our own experiences raising kids with mental health struggles. Join our conversation by attending a Lunch & Learn presentation, joining a Parents Connect Group, listening to our podcast, or spending time exploring our website and all of its resources.  And if you need more, reach out.  We are here for you.

CATCH Podcast

Parenting the Mental Health Generation

When Glenbrook North High School delayed finals at the last-minute due to the weather, it launched a firestorm of anger aimed at the administration.

In response, student editors at the school newspaper took a stand that brought its own criticism.

In this episode of Parenting the Mental Health Generation, we meet the authors of that editorial, Avery Copeland and Kaitlyn Lu.

They share the backlash they faced and why they believe their peers need to "suck it up" in the face of adversity.
