Mental Health in Youth
Let's Talk About Mental Health.
Our organization's mission is to support, understand, and advocate for youth in our diverse society, particularly those struggling with mental health challenges. By educating others and encouraging members of our community to take part in mental health advocacy, we hope to reduce the stigma around mental health, and spread awareness about this very real, immediate issue.

Mental Health in Youth has partnered with NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization. NAMI continuously engages in advocacy and awareness with regards to youth mental health, and provides education, support, and extensive resources intended to aid youth struggling with their mental wellbeing.
Join us in our mission to raise money for NAMI, to support the thousands of youth who are currently facing mental health challenges, and who lack the proper help or mental health services they truly need.

A message from the founder....
People often ask me why I care so deeply about mental health, why I have such a passion for advocacy and awareness. I always find myself replying with the same one sentence answer, "Because I understand." To be quite honest, a few years ago, I didn't give much thought to mental health. To me, mental health was a silent character, a distant voice in the background; physical health always seemed more important, more present, more "visible." I could not have been more wrong.
