Girls Take Flight

Behavioral health encompasses a broad range of issues ranging from suicide to self-esteem issues to eating disorders to gender identity issues. Due to longstanding cultural stigmas and poor financial rewards in the healthcare field, there is an urgent lack of attention and focus given to behavioral health. Thirty-One is proud to be partnered with America’s largest pediatric hospital & research center in the country, Nationwide Children’s Hospital to change that. We are responding to a serious problem with a serious plan. Through this work we are dedicated to helping girls take flight and reach their full potential.
