The Corvallis Clinic Foundation is working to address the mental health challenges faced by young people and their families in our community. The Foundation hosts online youth mental wellness groups to assist youth suffering from stress and depression and for parents of preschool and school-age children, including those with ADHD. The Foundation is producing a video series on these same topics and works to educate the community about the role we all can play in responding to today’s youth mental health crisis.
Youth Mental Wellness Groups
The Foundation provides online mental wellness groups to assist young people and their families. Groups rotate topics each week and are geared to teens ages 13-19 and for parents and guardians. Attendees may remain anonymous and can keep their cameras on or off based on their comfort level. Each meeting includes education, skills-building, and a time for questions and answers. The Foundation will never use, keep, or share your email address. These groups are not meant to replace professional care, are educational in nature, and are not recorded.

Support TCCF’s Youth Mental Wellness Program
The number of young people with mental health problems in our community has become an epidemic. There are too few practitioners and many young people in need, meaning many families who need quick access to mental health care cannot access it. We are working to fill some of the gaps through this program. Your support will help our efforts to make a difference for these young people in our community. Donate
