Your Donor Dollars At Work: Carson’s Story
There is no health without mental health. And Wisconsin's kids are facing a mental and behavioral health crisis. One in five children in Wisconsin is living with a serious mental illness and our youth suicide rate is significantly higher than most of the United States. Every dollar raised by the WFCA All-Star Charity Football Games helps Children’s change lives like Carson’s.
On the outside, Carson seemed like a happy, well-adjusted 14-year-old kid in a loving family. But a series of life challenges led to a sudden mental health crisis and, eventually, an attempted suicide resulting in devastating, life-threatening injuries.
Carson’s story is a dramatic reminder of why we must reduce the stigma that surrounds mental and behavioral health and ensure families have the tools to confront it. With your generous support, we can make a difference for Wisconsin’s kids.
