Addressing the Youth Mental Health Crisis and Eliminating Mental Illness Stigma for a Generation

Mental Health education works. Studies show that including a well-developed and implemented Mental Health curriculum in educational programming leads to decreased stigma and a stronger mental health knowledge base. In turn, this leads to robust peer support among youth, decreased delays to care, improved student productivity, and more effective interventions for students at risk of suicide (Kutcher et al, 2016).

We need your support!

Social and Emotional Learning, Substance Use and Suicide Prevention are categories under development. We intend to add those to the current and expanding Mental Health Literacy listings as soon as possible. 

To realize the full potential of this vision, we need your help in completing these categories by sponsoring the next phase of work in adding new curricula. Visit the Support MHI page and help in funding the next phase of work. Or, if you are a program developer, contact us to submit your program.
