About Yellow Heart Committee
Yellow Heart Committee (YHC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization mobilizing to support the holistic mental health of trauma survivors through policy advocacy, education, and community outreach. This is achieved through our pillars of HEART: Healing, Empowerment, Advocacy, Relationships, and Therapy. Yellow Heart Committee aims to create a world where the barriers between people and policy are broken, and survivors of trauma have access to spaces for holistic healing and comprehensive education.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We strive to be an organization that lives into its beliefs around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). We welcome and expect our current and future team members to join us on this collective journey.
We believe that through inclusive, digestible, and relatable mental health education, we can empower future generations to take charge of their personal and communal mental health standards. This will help guide us towards a future where mental health is treated with appropriate attention and care, and earnest dialogues are practiced and participated in through good faith.
