" The opportunity to be a part of an organization like the Millennium Fellowship is incredible. Not only does it give you the ability to connect with those around the world and see their different perspectives, it also joins you with others in your community who are also passionate about giving back. Bringing awareness to mental health and the stigmas that surround it is important to me, and I'm excited to achieve this through the Millennium Fellowship. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Mental Health Initiative
The Mental Health Initiative is a push to expand the awareness and education of mental health.
Mental health is an incredibly important topic, however, it is also incredibly misunderstood. All too often conversations surrounding mental health are laden with stigmas and biases against those who struggle with it. The goal of this initiative is to help combat those stigmas while also educating others on what mental health is.
The Mental Health Initiative will include presentations to local high schools on the importance of mental health and self-care, with a goal of at least 3 presentations completed. We also hope to develop a website with resources for both mental health and self-care, specifically geared towards those in high schools.
