The Source, Elkhart County - It's OK to ask.

THE SOURCE IS ELKHART COUNTY’S SYSTEM OF CARE

A system of care is a group of providers, families and youth working together as a team to remove the barriers to mental health resources and treatments for children, teens and young adults.
The partners of The SOURCE work to ensure kids and families who need services are connected to resources quickly and efficiently.
Our community has many organizations dedicated to the health and well-being of you and your family. There are no wrong doors in Elkhart County.

USING THE RESOURCES ON THIS SITE

The SOURCE created this website to give our community a place to learn about children’s mental health and to connect with supports when there are mental health challenges.

Our mission is to bring hope to children and families who are on a mental health journey.

Our “IT’S OK TO ASK” campaign is designed to encourage children, youth, young adults and parents to talk about mental health and ask questions without fear of stigma. When we talk about mental health as a normal part of our daily lives, we give ourselves the opportunity to reach out for help and to give help.

Sometimes as a parent it can be hard to know who to ask for help when you have questions about your child’s emotional well-being.
