Partners for StrongMinds launches digital campaign to reach young people before mental health crisis
Despite the proven power of early intervention to interrupt the progression of psychosis, most of the 100,000 young Americans who face a first episode each year miss this window of opportunity due to lack of information, shame and fear. Today, we’re announcing a new youth outreach campaign to close this gap, StrongMinds Project, led by our own Youth Leadership Board.
StrongMinds Youth Leader Brandon was just beginning his career when psychosis struck:
“I could have used an in-depth and comprehensive resource at the onset of my illness to help guide me to recovery. Having a strong network and support helps set you on the path to recovery much sooner and gives you direction.” -Brandon
Through a campaign website, blog, videos and social channels created by youth, for youth, StrongMinds Project offers information, resources and support aimed at shortcutting an unnecessarily long and often painful pathway to effective support for psychosis today.
