This year’s Hearts and Minds Film Festival focuses on films that will inspire reflection, dialog, and action about behavioral health issues affecting families of all kinds. Delaware Guidance Services is proud to be a supporting presenter of the inspirational and thought provoking film “Who Cares about Kelsey”, a documentary by Dan Habid, creator of the internationally acclaimed documentary, “Including Samuel.”
This film documents the lives of students with emotional/behavioral challenges, and shows innovative educational approaches that help these students to succeed – while improving the overall school culture and climate. For a summary of the film, check out www.whocaresaboutkelsey.com/about/the-film
The viewing of ‘Who Cares about Kelsey” is scheduled for Friday, April 25, at 9:00 a.m. at Penn Cinema on the Riverfront in Wilmington, Delaware.
Rhonda Quin, LPCMH, DGS Clinical Director in Kent and Sussex Counties, will facilitate the question and answer session following the film.

Thank you to the attendees, sponsors, and volunteers who made this year’s Champagne Gala on Friday, March 7, at Harry’s a night to remember and a big success!
In a festive Mardi Gras style, we danced and sang to the music of the Barbone Street Jazz band sponsored by M and T Bank, savored the authentic Louisiana cuisine which was carefully paired with selected wines and champagnes, and bid on the fantastic prizes in the silent and live auctions.
Most importantly, we came together for an important cause—the emotional well-being of Delaware’s children. The evening included a special toast to continue to strive toward our commitment to providing quality mental health treatment to Delaware’s most vulnerable children and adolescents.
All proceeds from the Champagne Gala support the
outpatient counseling that DGS provides to at-risk
children and youth.
With your help, DGS exceeded it $60,000 goal for the 60th Anniversary Fund Drive. We are grateful to all of you who supported our efforts.
