Robert Young Center granted $100,000 to support youth suicide prevention program


The Quad Cities Community Foundation awarded $100,000.00 to the Robert Young Center to support a new youth suicide prevention program.

The Quad Cities Community Foundation says: "There's a gap in the system when it comes to supporting families struggling with youth mental health issues".

The grant was received to create a Youth Suicide and Self-Harm Support program for youth, families, schools, and community groups. The program aims to raise awareness, offer therapy for youth, and support groups for parents.
