Our Mission

To create programs and events and to support organizations that focus on promoting the positive mental health of teens and young adults in our community.

We want to bring awareness to the prevalence of mental health issues, reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and bring the community closer to support mental wellness.

Mental health and suicidal behavior is a crisis in our communities, especially among teens and young adults.

Nearly three out of every seven young people face mental health challenges today.  The short and long term negative outcomes associated with youth mental health issues emphasize the importance of awareness and stresses the need for access to professional treatment.

Accordingly, our initial program will take action to support professional therapy and help eliminate the obstacles to receiving it. We have talked with families, local mental health organizations, and professionals who have confirmed there are many young people who want or need therapy but face financial obstacles.  Unfortunately, due to the complexity of mental health issues, insurance coverage can be either lacking or limited.  Most insurance providers are just not covering mental health illnesses as seamlessly and timely as they do physical illnesses.  There are enough challenges to taking the step to seek therapy and financial reasons should not be one of them.

The fund is now available and already helping people in our community.
