Our vision.

We envision a world where people are just as aware of their mental wellbeing as they are of physical wellbeing; a world made up of informed families and caring communities that support the mental fitness and development of young people in every way.

Our mission.

We empower families and communities to act with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to support the social, emotional, mental, and behavioral health of youth.


Our Team.

The Youth Mental Health Project is a group of individuals who believe that mental health is imperative to all health. We empower young people, parents, and caring adults with the practical knowledge, support and resources they need to nurture their children’s mental health and intervene when they recognize warning signs.

Our Partners.


The Youth Mental Health Project seeks to partner with individuals, groups, and organizations to educate and empower families and communities to understand and care for the mental health of young people.

Working collaboratively, we can strengthen the impact each partner can have on our youth.
