Committed to Making a Difference
My EARS 2 Hear was founded by Laraine Hutcherson, a mother of four with a passion for helping other families just like her own. Laraine and her husband have two children who suffer from severe mental health disorders. Their journey inspired Laraine to create an organization where families can get the help and support they desperately need to meet the needs of their children.
Mental health issues among children are far more prevalent than most people realize. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, one in five children has or will suffer from a “seriously debilitating mental health disorder.” As awareness rises, families have become more vocal about their children's needs. However, meeting those needs continues to be an overwhelming challenge. Although programs exist, it is extremely difficult to find the necessary resources and services, leaving many families desperate for help. My EARS 2 Hear and its programs exist to make a difference in the lives of these children and the people who love them.
