The lack of adequate mental health support is one of the biggest issues that’s facing teens today. For this reason, we’ve decided to launch the Teen Brain Trust, a task force to better explore the mental health issues teens are facing around the country and begin planning for a national teen-led mental health movement.

We’re still in the process of figuring out exactly what this task force will look like. But here is what you can expect:

  • join monthly conference calls with teen mental health advocates from around the country
  • get expert support from Youth Activism Project staff to launch a mental health movement in your community
  • possibly get funds for launching your movement
