See how local children are comforted by a cuddly bear:

  • A Bear was given Christmas Eve to a two year old female that was a passenger in an motor vehicle crash. She was overwhelmed with all that was going on.  Bear was given to her and the little girl lit up with excitement and happiness.  Hugged bear and would not let go.
  • A preschooler's head was caught in the car window. He hugged bear until police were able to set him free.
  • When her parent was arrested, a 6 year old and her two siblings were frightened. The three bears brought smiles.
  • ​A 5 year old boy was involved in a rollover car accident. He held the bear tight while paramedics checked him out.
  • A 4 year old suffered a severe allergic reaction to a bee sting. The bear helped comfort her.
  • A 5 year old darts out in traffic. Thankfully she is not badly injured, but she is hysterical until the emergency personnel put a cuddly bear in her arms.

The Teddy Bear Patrol Program at the NAMI Geauga County supplies first responders (policemen, firemen, E.M.T's, deputies, rangers, Victim Advocates, etc.) with cuddly stuffed bears that they can use to comfort a traumatized child. This program is funded through community support and grants. Because of community support we are able to continue this quality program.


When times are tough a cuddly hug can make a difference!​​​
