Charting impact

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

Raising awareness about the importance of mental health and the role of fandom in promoting mental health.
Providing mental health services to those in need through outreach, events, and resources.
Celebrating the diversity and creativity of fandom and promote inclusivity and compassion.
Raising funds for mental health causes and support mental health initiatives.
Creating a community of fans who share a passion for mental health and well-being.
Collaborating with other organizations and stakeholders to advance advocacy and policy.

Strategies to achieve these goals include developing social media campaigns, partnering with mental health organizations and influencers, hosting webinars and workshops, establishing partnerships with mental health clinics and schools, organizing mental health events and activities, creating online resources, developing a code of conduct for fandom events, highlighting diverse voices and perspectives in fandom, launching fundraising campaigns, partnering with companies and brands, creating mentorship and leadership programs, establishing partnerships with government agencies and policymakers, conducting surveys and research studies, and developing metrics and evaluation tools.
