Mental Health Ambassadors
Creating a team approach to mental health issues.
Did you know that 1 in 5 teenagers and adults are struggling with mental health issues at any given time? There is a growing mental health crisis amongst adolescents and, in particular Black and Brown youth.
The Mental Health Ambassadors program brings together teenagers who are passionate about supporting teen mental health. Together, the MHA team works to decrease the stigma, educate their peers and community about mental health, and create innovative spaces for self-care and healing.
We host both a school year and summer cohort of young people paid to bring their ideas to the table. We empower youth as co-creators with professionals to fill a vacuum in mental health policymaking and resource creation/distribution.
