CARE for ALL Kids Screening Campaign
Our goal is $20,000 by January 2019
Niños Health will bring rapid access to care by developing a technology platform so that mental health and neuropsychological screenings can be widely available at community events and in a newly developed clinic.
Care in our community
48% of children in Florida have government insurance such as Medicaid, CMS, CHIP or have no insurance. These programs do not pay or reimburse for neuropsychological services such as diagnostic testing.
Often times, children with chronic medical conditions such as epilepsy, cancer, and brain injury have access to expensive medical procedures to keep them alive and survive but then there are limited resources for mental health and academics, reducing quality of life. Limited access to behavioral health means that children with neurodevelopmental delays, learning disabilities, ADHD, Autism, anxiety, and depression get delayed or inadequate diagnosis or treatment, leading to poor educational, social, emotional, and employment outcomes.
Brevard by the Numbers
Out of nearly 110 thousand children in our community, 45% live with chronic medical conditions or mental illnesses.
