What we aim to solve

We envision a world where people are just as aware of their mental wellbeing as they are of physical wellbeing; a world made up of informed families and caring communities that support the mental fitness and development of young people in every way. The Youth Mental Health Project aims to arm parents and communities with knowledge of the mental health continuum. As our kids grow parents often work together on educational, sports and other related needs. When it comes to ages and stages we as parents compare and advise almost daily. Yet when it comes to seeking help for our children’s emotional and mental health we so often turn inward and hide. We aim to change that through knowledge and tools.

The Youth Mental Health Project believes it is essential that communities focus on what can be done to improve the mental health of the youth population. As with any other health concern, early intervention is crucial to improving outcomes. Stereotypes, discrimination and fear, however, contribute to the deafening silence around the mental health needs of young people, making identification, treatment and access to resources extremely difficult.

Educate - Our educational materials will enlighten and create a better understanding of youth mental health. Speakers - Our presentations are practical, educational and respectful of traditional approaches, and yet serve to spark a positive dialogue around the issue of children’s mental health. Film Screenings - A beautiful and poignant film, NO LETTING GO has the power to entertain, to engage and to educate diverse audiences about the vitally important issue of mental health in children, adolescents and young adults. The Parent Support Network - We developed The Parent Support Network because we recognized that, when it comes to the mental health of our children, parents remain isolated. It can be difficult to find and access proper resources, and we are here to help you meet these challenges. We are in multiple states and will continue to grow the program.

We are capable of meeting these goals as we have a solid donation support, grants and partnerships.

Number of people reached at events, number of educational materials downloaded for free or printed for sale, number parent support networks started.

In 2019 we had the following: We have had over 100,000+people watched NO LETTING GO on Amazon. We had 12 public screenings of the movie and 8 speakership events . The Parent Support Network completed its first full year of programming services and is now in 5 states and have over 40 volunteers. We have had over 500 parents attend meetings in 2019.
