ABOUT US

We are scientists, students, and other collaborators on a mission to support mental, emotional and social health through a diverse and truly connected community effort. We are currently researching best practices in established mental health programs across college and high school campuses, with a specific focus on reaching underserved populations. These include, but are not limited to, ethnic and religious groups and students with physical and invisible disabilities.
