About the Podcast

The “Real Talk About Children’s Mental Health” podcast is brought to you by The Children’s Center in Midtown Detroit. And, hosted by our very own Laura Le Fever (@TCC_Laura), Director of Community Projects.

In each episode, we get real about the unimaginable mental, social, and behavioral health challenges faced every day by Detroit’s most vulnerable children and families.

Why is this important? Because at The Children’s Center, we’re passionate about healing children. We believe every child deserves a chance to succeed, to become the amazing person they were born to be. To be accepted and not judged. And to be welcomed with wide-open arms.

Our mission, going all the way back to 1929, is to help children and families shape their own futures so they can heal, grow, and thrive. To empower their voices and learn to self-advocate once they’re outside the comfort of our walls. Because we know when you lift a child’s spirit, you ultimately lift an entire community.

Thank you for listening to the Real Talk About Children’s Mental Health podcast. Please, please share it with your friends on social media. The more people we reach with the information we share on this podcast, the more children and families we can help get the care they need and deserve.
