We are pleased to announce the expansion of our Mind Your Mind mental health initiative, after receiving $100,000 grant from Resilient Georgia. The initiative helps to raise awareness, promote resiliency and reduce stigma around mental health issues, particularly in light of the burdens created by COVID-19 as it continues to impact children and families. 

 
“We are honored to be awarded this grant to support the vital trauma-informed training, resources and programming to expand our Mind Your Mind initiative that launched in late 2019,” said Irene Barton, Cobb Collaborative Executive Director. “Mental illness affects 1 in 5 Americans, and yet so many individuals are hesitant to get help or are unaware of available resources. Now more than ever, it is critical to connect our community with knowledge and resources to help improve positive outcomes for Cobb county children and families.”
