HELP MAKE MENTAL HEALTH A PRIORITY IN OUR SCHOOLS
Most schools don’t have a budget for mental illness prevention and early intervention programs, even though catching mental illness early is the best way to ensure positive outcomes. At Art With Impact we connect high school students with mental health resources at the ages when most mental illnesses first appear.
Art With Impact’s unique high school workshops directly address the self-stigma that prevents students from receiving early intervention, which is proven to dramatically improve outcomes.
By using the emotional power of film to educate and empower students, we teach them how to be their own best advocate and directly connect them with available resources to get the help they need.
Your donation to Art With Impact will put our educators into classrooms so young people don’t have to face issues like depression, anxiety or eating disorders alone.
