Creating Lasting Change.


The Youth Mental Health Project is a grassroots nonprofit organization whose mission is to educate, empower, and support families and communities to better understand and care for the mental health of our youth.

We envision a world made up of informed families and caring communities that realize and strengthen the mental health of our youth — a world where people are just as aware of their mental health as their physical health, where families are validated and able to readily access the care they need.


What We Do

Our mission.


We educate, empower, and support families and communities to better understand and care for the mental health of our youth.

Who we are

The Youth Mental Health Project is a group of individuals who believe that:

  • Mental health lies on a continuum and includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being.
  • A healthy mind is as important to a child’s development as a healthy body.
  • In order to address the devastating consequences of the current mental health crisis, early intervention and prevention must become the norm.

With an emphasis on the mental health of children, teens, and young adults, we believe that educating, supporting, and empowering families and communities to understand and care for the mental health of young people is crucial to the health of a compassionate society.
