Crisis Response
On February 14th the Kansas City community faced an unthinkable event—a shooting at the Superbowl Parade, which injured several children. As the leading mental health organization for young children, we responded by (quickly) providing support and resources for the community. We developed a comprehensive social media campaign aimed at helping the community heal and process the traumatic event and to raise awareness about the importance of mental health support for children and families.
