Family Day at Children’s National Hospital
May 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
On Tuesday, May 15, Hillcrest Center is hosting a Family Day at Children’s National Hospital in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month. We are partnering with the U.S. Attorney’s Office Heroin and Opioid Task Force for this special event. We will be feeding families from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). In addition, we will provide 60 individuals with food and resources for mental health and substance use disorder.
Facts about the Children’s National Hospital NICU
- Their NICU is designated Level IV, providing the highest level of neonatal care for more than 800 babies a year.
- Their nursery has clinical teams that take care of babies requiring special surgery for birth defects and other disorders.
We want to engage and educate the families about the benefits of behavioral health services and remove the stigma for health seeking individuals. If you would like to support this event with a financial contribution, click here.
We would like to acknowledge Sam Dulaney and Eagle Scout Troop 993 and Troop 1509 for putting together 60 care kits to help the families during their hospital stay.
