Sometimes even finding the right provider can be a barrier. For children and teens who have Medicaid, CHP+, or private insurance that adequately covers mental health treatment, Second Wind Fund can help narrow down a list of therapists who meet the child or teen’s needs bypassing confusing healthcare systems.
Second Wind Fund covers the cost of 12-20 sessions of therapy for youth ages 19 and younger who are at risk for suicide. We exist to eliminate all financial and social barriers to mental health services. Youth are initially granted 12 sessions, based on individual needs of the youth, their provider can request an extension for 8 additional sessions. This includes ALL YOUTH regardless of ability to pay for services or insurance status (including Medicaid recipients).
