Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Deliver programs, created by teens, that arrest suicidal thoughts before they occur. Partner with other organizations to deliver comprehensive preventable measures in our schools and communities.

Youth Based Prevention: Youth created messaging and tools that promote increased peer to peer interaction & conversations on teen depression, teen anxiety, and teen suicide. Deliver tools that enable teens and adults to "start the conversation. Develop and distribute an Adult Handbook, written by teens, on how to talk to teens about depression, anxiety, and suicide.

Teen Therapy: Target support of highly effective and efficient organizations specializing in teen therapy. Support groups for teens suffering from depression or anxiety.

"At Risk" Identification: Legislated Mental Health screening in Grades 7-12. Legislated and funded Mental Health support in schools per the guidelines by the National Association of School Psychologists. Support of science-based programs with demonstrated efficacy in schools and communities.

A diverse and highly engaged Board of Directors, Staff and Teen Activists are aggressively driving our agenda and strategies forward.

We have HOPEgroups (teen lead peer groups) being established in multiple cities and states.

During the most recent Colorado Legislative session we actively lobbied for a bill, which was signed into law, to create a set of wrap-around mental health care services in the state to ease a families journey through the state and private systems. The law mandates mental health screenings at primary care physicians offices for all teens.
