Mission Statement

Our Mission: To educate teachers, school staff, parents and youth workers on mental health and mental disorders so that youth with a mental health issue can be identified early, receive help and have better outcomes.

Description

Healing Our Youth: Get Educated! is a youth mental health educational program whose purpose is to educate the adults who are most involved in the lives of youth (school employees and parents) so that these adults can identify mental health concerns in youth early, which will hopefully lead to earlier treatment of mental disorders and lead to decreased morbidity and mortality caused by mental disorders.

We present monthly in the community and in the schools.

Our Goals:

* To decrease the stigma surrounding mental disorders

* To create conversation around mental health

* To increase mental health education in our schools and community

* To increase access to mental health care

* To reduce the morbidity and mortality of mental disorders in youth through early diagnosis and early treatment

* To reduce the number of youth suicides through early diagnosis and early treatment of mental disorders
