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.


Our Vision: To develop Healing Our Youth: Get Educated! into a comprehensive evidenced-based mental health educational program with regular ongoing presentations 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


The Healing our Youth is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which relies on grants, donations and volunteers.
