Who We Are
We are a not-for-profit depression and mental health education organization that provides free, flexible and effective programming to schools, teens, parents, young adults, health professionals and community organization.
What We Believe
It is our strong belief that the failure to recognize the symptoms of depression and the stigma associated with mental illness prevent teens from getting the help they deserve.
Understanding that depression is the largest risk factor for teen suicide, our approach is to provide free and accessible depression and mental health education, promoting early identification and treatment of depression.
Depression education creates a safe environment for teens to talk about mental health. It removes the barriers to treatment and protects lives. Our programming is guided by the message that depression is common and can be serious, but it is treatable. There is hope, and help.
Our philosophy is that in order for your program to be successful, we must be flexible. We provide the guidance, materials and support you will need to implement depression and mental health education programs that respect your culture and are authentic to your voice.
We believe that everyone deserves good mental health.
