Washburn Center for Children is Minnesota's leading children's mental health center, caring for a wide variety of children's needs such as trauma, anxiety, depression and learning difficulties. Children's mental health is foundational to their ability to experience success in school – academically and socially. Washburn provides early intervention so children can overcome their social, emotional or behavioral problems, recapture the joy of childhood, and grow to become healthy adults. The nonprofit's $7.7 million budget serves more than 2,400 children each year through an array of center-based, in-home and school programs.
Responding to the community's needs, Washburn expanded its mental health services and now serves 81% more children than it did five years ago. Washburn's training program prepares tomorrow's brightest children's mental health professionals. Between 60-70 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral interns train at Washburn each year, learning best practices in children's mental health care that they then carry out to communities and children across the nation.
