Rose Felix Cratsley of Worcester is Founder and President of Ivy Child International, a non-profit that develops global mental health initiatives for children, families, and communities.

Cratsley’s work is well-founded and relevant for today’s youth who are battling a range of issues. She looks at the whole child and helps build healthy habits to last a lifetime. Ivy Child serves as a gateway for children and their families to a professional network of experts in nutrition, exercise, alternative medicine, art therapy and other areas.
