Mental Health Awareness Month

Date: May 1, 2018 - May 31, 2018

Among the challenges so many of our families face is the struggle with mental illness. Perhaps it is their own illness that they struggle with, or the residual stress of being raised by a parent with untreated mental illness.

Old Mill Center works to help children thrive. That includes facing the challenge of mental illness head on.

Because:
  • 1 in 5 adults will experience mental illness
  • 20% of youth live with a mental health condition
  • 70% of youth in juvenile justice systems have a mental illness
  • 90% of those who die of suicide have an underlying mental illness
What can you do?
A child can thrive when:
  • His parents are thriving
  • He has the tools to manage the challenges of his strong feelings and behaviors
  • She knows that she is not alone in her fight
Children learn healthy behaviors from parents who are mentally healthy.

Help us in our work with mental illness. We can be stronger together.
Learn about the many ways you can support our programs.

Holiday Families Gift Drive

Date: November 1, 2017 - December 12, 2017
Holiday Families Gift Drive "Secret Santa" The holidays can be a stressful time for many families. Holiday gifts and new clothing are often not possible for children in households struggling to maintain basic shelter, food and other necessities.
We think every child deserves a joyous holiday! A gift just for them can make the season feel extra special.
Our Holiday Families “Secret Santa” gift program has been helping provide a sense of stability, normalcy—and most importantly, holiday magic—to the children we serve since 2001.

Would you like to help?

Become a Secret Santa!
We are connecting generous donors with more than 200 children in need.
Contact Cindy Bond by December 12th.
cindy_bond@oldmillcenter.org • 541-757-8068
When you gift through our Secret Santa program, you make a child’s holiday truly magical!
