The Cook Center for Human Connection is a non-profit, family foundation focused on providing families with access to mental health resources from the privacy of their home. They do this by partnering with school districts across the country, as they know that nearly 80% of families rely on the school system for mental health support. Their goal is to empower and educate families, so that parents can confidently address mental health concerns with their child.
