What we do

We create accessible education to the common public on life saving issues, while providing resources to get help, inspiring active conversations, and thus transforming the way mental health is viewed.

 We have resources to help you. We have education to teach you.

Through a variety of accessible platforms, we provide life saving education and society changing awareness in modern, digestible formats.

Here’s a sneak peak at one of our projects- our feature length documentary.

How you can help

Our message is that mental health is just as important as physical health, and should be treated that way.

We strive for a world where help is accessible for everyone who wants it without stigma. We encourage real discussions, conversations, and education around mental health. 

But we can’t do it alone. We need your help. We are a nonprofit and we rely on people like you to help us create this major change. Please help us by volunteering or making a donation.
