Mountain Interval was built by local mental health professionals who feel that the youth of our community should all have the opportunity to excel. Those diagnosed with psychological disorders are often at a disadvantage. We seek to provide tools and life skills to enale children with extra challenges to overcome obstacles, grow stronger, and thrive in society. The children and youth of Southern Nevada will grow to be the citizens and leaders of tomorrow, and we take that responsibility seriously.
