Nebraska 150 for Break the Cycle
Children are caught in a cycle of limited access to care, delayed treatment, and worsening illnesses. From August to October, Dr. Andrés Martin will cycle from Washington State to Washington, DC, leading a ride to raise awareness of the challenges faced by children and adolescents with mental illnesses. Dr. Martin is heading to Nebraska for a kickoff event to help him prepare for his cross-country bike ride!
Support our two-day Break the Cycle event in Omaha, July 29-30, as we bike 150 miles to coincide with the Nebraska Sesquicentennial. Rather than a typical bike ride where community members ride, we are going to have a small group of community leaders ride, such as government representatives, local health care leaders, mental health representatives, etc., to demonstrate their support for pediatric mental health.
Your donation will:
(1) fund innovative research initiatives
(2) increase the number of child and adolescent psychiatrists
(3) help ensure that children suffering in silence or facing stigma get the treatment they need
For event questions, contact Chris Kratochvil, MD, at email@example.com
