Child Mind Institute

5 percent of every sale of a Plum Rd. sweater will be donated to the Child Mind Institute’s general fund, which goes towards programs that subsidize clinical treatment for children, fund mental health evaluations, and provide stress-management workshops for teachers. These are just a few examples of the incredible work the Child Mind Institute is doing.

Child Mind Institute Mission Statement:
The Child Mind Institute is dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders by giving them the help they need to thrive.


- Today, over 17 million children in the United States struggle with a mental health or learning disorder; that’s 1 in 5 children.

- More than two-thirds of those children never get the help they need. Those who do receive treatment typically wait an average of eight years from symptom onset.

- 50 percent of mental health disorders begin before age 14 and 75 percent begin before age 24.

- 40 percent of youth with diagnosable ADHD don’t get treatment.

- 60 percent of youth with diagnosable depression don’t get treatment.

- 80 percent of youth with a diagnosable anxiety disorder don’t get treatment.
