High 5 Project - Children's Hospital New Orleans LCMC Health

Did you know: 1 in 5 children has a significantly impairing mental disorder, yet less than half get the treatment they need?

At Children’s Hospital New Orleans, we’re on a mission to change that by building a community where all kids receive the specialized care and support they need. The High 5 Project aims to ensure that 5 out of 5 kids with mental and behavioral disorders receive the care and support they need to thrive.

mental health disorders affect 1 in 5 kids The High 5 Project is about spreading kindness, boosting confidence, providing support, sharing resources, improving care, and building a community focused on mental wellbeing for all kids.
