How We Got Started

We started this in 2016 to build awareness and break down the stigma that surrounds mental illness, addiction and homelessness. After losing several  friends to addiction and watching our loved ones suffer from a mental illness, sometimes cycling between hospitals, jail and the streets, we decided we wanted to make it cool to talk  about these things. Our founder has sat on the San Diego County Behavioral Health Advisory Board as a Family Chair and has done work with the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Hawaii Chapter.


 

It's For The Kids

Lets educate the youth, their parents,  teachers and the community so that no one has to suffer and we can be more compassionate to one another. With early detection, proper intervention and treatment, recovery is possible for all.

Mental Health

Teens & Young Adults

Mental health conditions are common among teens and young adults. 1 in 5 live with a mental health condition—half develop the condition by age 14 and three quarters by age 24. For some, experiencing the first signs can be scary and confusing. Discussing what you are going through with others is an important first step to getting help. Speaking up and asking for help is a sign of strength. You will be amazed by the support you get simply by asking. A mental health condition isn't your fault or your family's fault—it develops for complicated reasons that researchers are only starting to understand. But we understand a lot about how you can live well with a mental health condition—and you have the power to take the steps necessary to improve your mental health. Mental health services and supports are available and the earlier you access them the better. Many teens and young adults live full lives with a mental health condition. More and more teens and young adults are speaking out about their experiences and connecting with others. Check out Ok2Talk to see what others are saying. You are not alone—there are others out there going through the same things you are.- See more at: https://www.nami.org/Find-Support/Teens-and-Young-Adults#sthash.dRDqkS3X.dpuf
