Our Approach

To support the well-being of youth and young adults, communities provide many opportunities to build stronger connections among friends and neighbors. Fostering greater awareness and comprehension of mental health challenges through community organizations can provide youth with stronger social connections and overall well-being, having a direct impact on the vitality of a community.
