The REsource for Advancing Children's Health

REACH is dedicated to improving the mental health of the 10 million American youth with emotional and behavioral challenges. Led by national leaders in child psychiatry, psychology and pediatrics, REACH arms thousands of individuals and institutions with the best, evidence-based therapies to improve the mental health of children and adolescents.

Narrowing the Research

It takes 15‐18 years for medical innovations to reach those they are intended to help. REACH works to narrow the research‐ to‐practice gap in child mental health care to just three years by taking information and training on the most advanced, evidence‐based therapies directly to those responsible for the health care of children.

Helping Children

REACH increases the nation’s capacity to help children with mental health disorders. There are only about 7,400 child psychiatrists practicing in our country today. Six million children and adolescents suffer from mental illness. With these numbers, each available psychiatrist would have to carry a caseload of 811.

Early Intervention

Early intervention by trained professionals is the best way to reduce costs and limit the developmental damage of child behavioral and emotional disorders,” says Peter S. Jensen, M.D., President and CEO, The REACH Institute. “That is what REACH is all about."
