PROJECT 375 has raised over $1 MILLION since implementing our youth program, PROJECT PREVENT™. We know early intervention and prevention saves lives.
Suicide is currently the second leading cause of death in youth ages 10-24. More than 20% of youth live with a mental health condition. Education is vital in creating a cultural shift concerning the stigma of mental health and in addressing the lack of resources for youth across the nation. We start by instituting Youth Mental Health First Aid training, an 8-hour public education course which teaches the community how to recognize and stabilize a mental health crisis.
PROJECT PREVENT™ brings training and support directly to the community and provides youth with mental fitness toolkits, which include educational materials and resources for mental health assistance. The overarching goal is to create improved access to care for students most at risk and in need of mental health services, as well as provide a safer, more supportive environment for all youth.
We thank you very much for your generous gift and the meaningful impact it has on the mental health community, patients, survivors and their loved ones.
