Cook Children's JOY Campaign is a communication initiative that aims to encourage hope and resilience among children and teens.

The number of children and teens suffering from anxiety, stress and depression is skyrocketing. Sadly, Cook Children's has seen a record number of patients attempting suicide in the past year. The JOY Campaign is a suicide prevention communication initiative led by Cook Children's to bring hope and needed resources to children and families facing struggles and dark times in their lives.

If you need to talk or if you are concerned about someone, please call for advice or help.
