This week, Starr Battle Creek participated in the 12th Annual Kalamazoo Children’s Mental Health Carnival. There were over 3,000 people at this event, and Starr Battle Creek had a wonderful booth set up with all sorts of Starr giveaways and information about Starr Global Learning Network and Starr Battle Creek Home Based Program.
A grant from Chemical Bank has boosted Starr Commonwealth’s Battle Creek program, which provides hundreds of families with mental health services each year.
The grant of $2,250 will provide additional after school activities for the young people in the intensive in-home mental health program, as well as important information materials.
Starr’s intensive in-home mental health program has served families in the Battle Creek area for the last 18 years, and combines individual, family and group therapy; crisis intervention; case management; and connection to community resources.
