Big Lots Has a Bold Plan to Help Kids Everywhere

Coming in 2020: the Big Lots Behavioral Health pavilion

Thanks to a transformational $50 million gift from Big Lots and their Foundation, Nationwide Children’s Hospital will construct America’s largest behavioral health treatment and research center just for children and adolescents.

It’s a big move to address a national crisis. Behavioral health issues, including suicide, are dramatically increasing among children under the age of 18. One in five children ages 13-18 live with a serious mental illness, but only half of those children will get the treatment they need.

Big Lots is joining with America’s largest pediatric hospital and research center to change these statistics.

It’s a BIG move to create a brighter future for our next generation.
