Kerr empowers people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental health challenges, and other social barriers to lead self-determined lives and reach their full potential.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, over 600 youth (5-17 years) facing a mental health crisis received lifesaving care from Kerr’s Children’s Mental Health Services. During this historic time, our children’s mental well-being is at risk. Oregon’s children experience the highest prevalence of major depression in the U.S. Our youth suicide rate is 35% higher than the national average. Now, more than ever, we need to ensure children and teens have access to Kerr’s vital mental health services.
“Six years ago, I would have never in a million years seen myself where I am today, and all I have accomplished. Kerr was life-changing for me—they stood by me every step of the way.” —Mack, Kerr client
