MIKID is a non-profit, family run organization that is dedicated to serving children, transitional age youth, and families throughout Arizona. MIKID’s mission is to improve the behavioral health and wellness of children and youth through a family centered approach.
MIKID was started through the efforts of our founder, Ms. Sue Gilbertson, who began her quest to unite families and working together to build a better mental health system for children when her son, Eric, was diagnosed with mental illness in 1984. Through these efforts, families had their very first support group on March 11, 1987, which led to the formation of MIKID.
Today, MIKID employs over 130 professionally trained staff offering an array of services to families of children with emotional and behavioral challenges. MIKID provides education, resources, and support to hundreds of Arizona families annually. MIKID has offices in Phoenix, Casa Grande, Kingman, Nogales, Tucson, & Yuma.
