There is no health without mental health.

We believe that early intervention and prevention is essential to the improvement of outcomes and the reduction in the incidence and severity of serious mental illness..


Randi Silverman

Co-Founder and CEO

  • Over the past ten years, Randi Silverman has organized and led community-based campaigns and support groups on the issue of child and adolescent mental health. As the mother of a child with a mental health disorder, she has experienced first-hand the challenges and struggles faced by families with a loved one who struggles with mental illness.

    In 2011, Randi co-founded a local community Parent-to-Parent Support Group for parents raising children who have issues with anxiety, depression, and/or mood disorders, which has served over 800 families in Westchester, NY. As a graduate of the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Law, Randi also uses her knowledge of the law to help parents advocate for the educational needs of their children who suffer from mental health challenges.

  • A believer in the power of storytelling, Randi used her real life experiences to co-write and produce the multi-award winning film, NO LETTING GO.

    Randi’s personal goal in sharing her story on the big screen was to create community conversations around the vitally important issues of youth mental health.

    As a result, the producers are working with The Youth Mental Health Project to utilize the film as part of a social impact campaign that will bring screenings to communities all over the country, and beyond.

    Randi is a frequent public speaker and presenter on the topic of youth mental health, and plans to continue to share her story until society understands that mental health is as important as physical health.

    Randi is on the Board of Directors of the International Bipolar Foundation.
