The mission of MindPeace is to advocate for access to high quality mental healthcare for all children in Greater Cincinnati.
MindPeace began as a project of the Junior League of Cincinnati (JLC) in 2002 to answer a significant need for an improved system of mental health care for children in the Greater Cincinnati area.
Hundreds of JLC volunteers devoted thousands of volunteer hours to develop a model for a seamless system of children’s mental health and wellness with the help of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and many other community partners.
In 2007, the JLC launched MindPeace as its own non-profit because no other mental health organization focused on systemic improvements to children’s mental health access and quality and in response to the demand from the collaborative network of providers and other stakeholders which had been developed through the work of MindPeace.
