Join the Youth Mental Health Movement

By Amy Stonoha  |  September 13, 2018  |  Uncategorized
All young people deserve to grow into healthy, self-sufficient adults. But one in five children experience a mental illness each year. And 20 percent of teens struggle with depression before they reach adulthood. A few weeks ago, National Council President and CEO Linda Rosenberg announced a two-year learning opportunity to reduce the impact of anxiety, depression and suicide among underserved youth ages 10 to 24. To make a difference in the lives of youth, we need your help! Join the initiative and create better supports for young people experiencing mental health challenges while also empowering youth to engage in meaningful community change. Get connected to coaches, mentors and subject matter experts who can help you adopt and sustain leading-edge mental health supports in your organization. You’ll learn to:

  • Connect young people with new kinds of mental health supports and research-based treatment.
  • Connect youth to one another as project leaders and advisors.
  • Connect communities with these new approaches.
  • Connect applicants to funding (up to $100,000 per site) to support these efforts.

Ready to get started? Apply today. Want to learn more? Visit the Youth Mental Health Call for Applications for more information. Applications are due by 11:59 pm ET on Friday, October 5, 2018. Know someone who may be interested in the project? Pass it along. If we work together, we will reach our goal – helping healthy children grow up in healthy communities. Together our voices can make a difference.
