Kim Kardashian is on a mission to help children across the world tackle their physical and mental health issues.
On Tuesday, the beauty mogul launched her first Facebook fundraiser on behalf of the Child Mind Institute, a non-profit dedicated to changing the lives of kids with mental health issues or learning difficulties.
In the post, the mother-of-three wrote:
‘As a mother of three, I think nothing is more important than my children’s health. This includes their physical and mental health.
‘Over 17 million kids in the US struggle with a mental health or learning disorder like anxiety, ADHD, dyslexia or depression, making it hard for them to learn and succeed. Yet with proper diagnosis and treatment, these children can thrive. As students return to the classroom this fall, I want to do what I can to make sure they have all they need to succeed in school and in life, now and in the future.’
Explaining the work of the The Child Mind Institute, the 37-year-old continued:
‘They work every day to care for kids who come from around the world for help, and their researchers are studying the brain to figure out what causes mental health disorders and how to better diagnose and treat these conditions.
‘And they are working in classrooms, with students, teachers and parents, to teach children to manage their emotions in a healthy way and get kids the help they need fast. Visit .’
