The goal this year is to donate $50,000 to the Mental/Behavioral Health Initiative at Rady Children’s Hospital.

A child at risk is a concern to all of us. Rady’s Emergency Department sees more than 200 children and adolescents per month with acute mental health needs. Consistent with Rady’s history, in 2014 the hospital was proactive and took steps to increase capacity for pediatric mental health care services in San Diego County by opening the “Crisis Stabilization Unit” (CSU), which at this time has 12 beds. The CSU is a 24-hour, short-term crisis and treatment program that assists patients in a mental health crisis.
Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary – Coronado Unit’s mission is to work in partnership with Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego and to support its mission through: advocating for the health and well-being of children, increasing community awareness of Rady Children’s, and fundraising.
