Making a Difference Together

The Youth Mental Health and Wellness Coalition of St. Clair County was founded in 2000 by a group of passionate individuals who saw a need for better mental health resources for youth in St. Clair County. Since then, our organization has grown and made a tremendous impact thanks to the help of members and volunteers in the community. Our core work is driven by a commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
