Who are we? 

We are a global community of GEN Z students, leaders, and changemakers with a shared passion for mental health advocacy. 

There was a problem, and we decided to be the solution!

  • Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, mental illness affected 20% of adolescents worldwide. 

  • Unfortunately, COVID-19 intensified these challenges and made youth susceptible to poor mental health conditions:

    • 27% reported feelings of anxiety

    • 46% reported having less motivation 

    • 40% reported feeling pessimistic about the future 

    • 73% reported feeling the need to ask for help

  • Worse, adolescents have lost contact with their support systems- friends, teachers, counselors, mental health facilities, and more.
