Our Services

Serving local students, families, schools and communities

Today, our children are bombarded with negative influences. These negative impacts often cause behavioral and emotional issues which require the expertise of ECHO's licensed Mental Health Therapists and Family Advocates.

Consider these statistics from the National Alliance on Mental Illness:

  • 32% of teens in the United States experience anxiety disorders.
  • 1 in 5 youth aged 13-18 (21.4%) experience a severe mental health condition at some point during their life; for children aged 8-15, that estimate is 13%
  • 1-6 youths (ages 12-17) experienced a major depressive episode (MDE)
  • 25% of students (age 14+) with a mental health condition drop out of school.
  • 50% of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14 and 75% by age 24.
  • Suicide is the 2nd leading case of death among people aged 10-14 
  • 1 in 5 people report that the pandemic had a significant negative impact on their mental health
