We believe that when teens know about depression, they are more likely to get the help they need, and deserve.
We believe that, as our future leaders, young adults should be engaged in education and advocacy about depression and mental health.
We believe that parents should be armed with fact-based and practical mental health information.
We believe that mental health education must begin at school and should be hopeful, helpful and easy to use.
We believe in the importance of building a strong alliance with healthcare professionals, providing useful information to serve their patients.
We believe that when everyone in a community has a common understanding about mental illness, we can reduce stigma and protect lives.
