BENEFITING: Minding Your Mind
The Minding Your Mind Foundation leads initiatives to reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues among adolescents in middle and high schools as well as college students. Our outreach programs enlighten families and educators about the warning signs so often masked by normal adolescent behavior and promote open dialogue in schools and at home to encourage families to seek appropriate help.
This is a very important cause for me given that I work with many teens with diagnosed mental illnesses. Unfortunately, the kids that I represent were not able to get the help they needed prior to acting out. This is such an important cause because it is not something addressed very often. Many teens and adolescents silently suffer because they don't know where to seek help. Please help me raise awareness by donating whatever you can! Every little bit helps!
