There was a problem, and we decided to be the solution!
Even before COVID-19 pandemic, mental illness affected 20% of adolescents worldwide.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 intensified these challenges and made them susceptible to poor mental health conditions:
27% reported feelings of anxiety
46% reported having less motivation
40% feel pessimistic about the future
73% felt the need to ask for help, but 40% did not
What's worse is that many adolescents have lost contact with their support systems- friends, teachers, counselors, mental health facilities, and more.
What is our goal?
We aim to support youth wellbeing during COVID-19 by spreading one Smile at a time!
Who are we?
We are a global team of GEN Z students, leaders, and changemakers with a shared passion for mental health advocacy.
What do we do?
Create free and accessible mental health resources,
Develop education and awareness programs,
#Breakthebarriers and connect teens from all over the globe,
Show the power of collaboration, diversity, and innovation.
