|About||Goal: Educate US citizens on mental health to destimaze those struggling with an illness and stress caring for one’s own brain health needs within life.|
|Mission||To educate as many individuals in both English and Spanish-speaking communities regarding mental illness while assisting those who have been diagnosed address their healthcare needs and complete daily living skills. Loved ones are also educated on the importance of providing a social support system and the depths a mental illness can go. Eventual plans to begin lobbying for pro-mental health policies to be passed in legislation exist, but without financial support to assist simply the grassroots program, branching out is up to donations.|

Projects and Goals
Project 1: “I’m Going To Talk”
An initiative to visit high schools as well as middle schools along the East Coast to give a lecture and spawn a discussion about Mental Health advocacy.
- The talk ends with a «call to action» for students to make a serious pledge to speak to another individual if experiencing suicidal ideation or feelings. In addition to suicidal ideation, students are urged to discuss any symptoms which feel off or not like themselves in order to address potential suicidal risks or the early stages of a behavioral change/Mental Illness Development, as many mental disorders can be treated with intensive dialectical behavioral therapy.
- Upon signing the pledge and receiving a copy of it, an IGT bracelet and IGT-support [End Mental Health Stigma] sticker will be given to the student. Resources on Mental Health and suicide hotline information will be provided in addition.
- In order to overcome the fear of peer pressure, we offer the incentive to each individual who signs a piece of paper stating that one would identify with someone trusted and listen if someone desires to speak with them. Each student will be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate of the winner’s choosing.
