“Friends of GIANT Steps”
Charity Dinner And Auction
March 21, 2019
GIANT Steps is a preschool for children with autism-spectrum diagnoses run by WMH. Currently GIANT Steps has 72 students in 6 classrooms throughout Utah County with even more on a waiting list to get in. Last year, “Friends of GIANT Steps” (FOGS) raised and provided funds to pay for a new after-school program to provide services to families on the waiting list whose children would likely age out before getting into the program. Funds are needed to continue this after-school program and to help meet the needs of an ever growing program!
Mental Health Services Awareness Night
Held Annually during October. Watch for details for 2019.
People frequently turn to ecclesiastical leaders, physicians, school personnel, other professionals, and community leaders to help locate mental health and counseling services. The purpose of this event is to help community leaders know where to refer people for mental health and counseling services. This event is intended for “gatekeepers” or leaders and other highly invested community members, but not for actual mental health clients. Past attendees have overwhelmingly expressed satisfaction with the material and resources that were presented.
