The CATCH Story

CATCH grew as a result of parents who came together with shared experiences and a concern for children’s overall well-being.

CATCH believes that by understanding mental health and making it a priority for children, we can raise resilient, confident, and independent people, even in this complex world of stress and pressure.

CATCH is a 501(c)(3) providing support and educational programs for elementary, junior high, and high school students and families.

CATCH is based in Northbrook and welcomes anyone in the area. It is a group of engaged and dedicated parents who are making a difference for the children and families in our community.

Why did we create CATCH?
