Mental Health / Wellness
We are currently developing an innovative and highly cost-effective program, incorporating an award-winning digital app and behavioral health platform, to meet the significant need for assessing and improving mental wellness among teens in schools.
We are looking for more schools to participate in our Phase 1 program rollout in the 2020-21 school year this fall.
According to the Association for Children’s Mental Health in Lansing, MI, citing an article published in Archives of General Psychiatry, “Addressing mental health needs in school is critically important because 1 in 5 children and youth have a diagnosable emotional, behavioral or mental health disorder and 1 in 10 young people have a mental health challenge that is severe enough to impair how they function at home, school or in the community.”
Even though mental illness affects so many of our kids aged 6-17, it is estimated that 50-80% of them do not receive the mental health care they need.
Schools are most effected and are being forced to deal with these issues, yet lack necessary financial and human resources.
