As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago hosted a Facebook LIVE event with Dr. Colleen Cicchetti, Dr. Matthew Davis, and Mr. John Vincent discussing bullying and cyber bullying among children and young people.
CCR Executive Director, Dr. Colleen Cicchetti spoke with IL Public Media on their show, The 21st, discussing how Illinois healthcare professionals are working to better support children experiencing trauma, including a new collaborative at the University of Chicago, the BHC Collaborative.
Last month, Mikva youth hosted two pop-up clinics in North Lawndale and Humboldt Park, which were a culmination of their learning from the Teen Health Council. The clinics were a huge success and we’re so proud of the good work they’re doing in Chicago communities.
On March 20, CCR received the 2019 Own Award presented by the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago & Northwest Indiana which recognizes organizations and individuals who have made the world a better place by advancing opportunities for girls and women.
