Morgan Guess, a senior at McCracken County High School and founder of the Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation, has been elected to The Kentucky Partnership for Families and Children, Inc. (KPFC) Board of Directors.
KPFC is a statewide, private, not-for-profit organization that believes all families raising youth and children affected by behavioral health challenges deserve responsive systems providing services and resources that are family-driven and youth-guided.
“I am grateful for the confidence the board has in my ability to contribute and to be a voice for young people,” said Guess. “We are a united voice dedicated to improving services for children in Kentucky with emotional, social, and behavioral challenges.
KPFC is the state chapter for the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health and is the Center for Mental Health Services Statewide Family Network grantee for Kentucky.
KPFC works to:
- effect policy changes at the state level,
- educate legislators about the needs of children with severe emotional disabilities,
- improve services so that all children and families will be able to receive appropriate services in their home communities, and give a voice to the youth and families that live with this disability every day.
