Working toward the day when no teen turns to suicide.
Since our founding in 2012, we have been guided by a vision of a world where no teen dies by suicide. This vision inspired our network of in-school mental health clubs. Led by students, Our Minds Matter clubs offer safe spaces for teens to feel supported in their mental health journeys.
Here’s how we’re changing the culture around mental health:
- We help teens support teens. Our student leaders are trained to develop and guide their peers on establishing protective factors like social connectedness, help-seeking behavior, prosocial skills, and self-care and healthy habits – so that they never turn to suicide.
- We normalize the mental health conversation. Through research-backed curriculum, Our Minds Matter club activities make it fun and easy for teens to learn how their mental health is as important as their physical health.
- We pass the power to teens. We know that adolescents are heavily influenced by their peers – which is why we developed a peer-to-peer program model. By empowering teens to become mental health changemakers in their schools, we’re able to reach thousands of additional students with mental health resources and positive messages.
If you are in a position to give, we promise to put your investment to good use. Thank you for believing in a world where it is possible for all teens to get the mental health support they need.
