Twin Cities-based regional media outlet KARE 11 News aired an interview with TreeHouse’s senior coach and mentor Mandy Betlach along with her mentee Beulah on the 10 p.m. broadcast on Monday, February 13. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released a new report on February 13 which revealed in-depth data about the ongoing teen mental health crisis, particularly for girls. The statistics are deeply sobering, and news outlets from local to global continue to cover this important story.


We know that more teens in more communities need TreeHouse. Most importantly, they need to be introduced to the unfailing love and acceptance of Jesus. We are grateful for this opportunity to share more about the resources available through TreeHouse with a broader audience.


As Mandy notes in the story, “Hope abounds.”
