FAMILY & COMMUNITY
...working in mental health is challenging,
but highly rewarding.
We work to identify what services
are lacking. Building capacity at community levels to provide best in class solutions is what we strive to do."

CONDUCT A TEAM SPRINT OF YOUR OWN!
We've designed a sprint program that engages the spirit at an individual & team level. Find potential proof of concepts that are implementable right now in your organization and/or community.
In 2020, as a part of our mental health investibility study, we enabled youth & experts to build solutions addressing mental health in 6 individual life tracks as applicable to local organizational needs and implementability.
We've now collaborated with over 3,000 youth leaders worldwide since the framework creation in early 2020.
MENTAL HEALTH affects >600 million people worldwide and most countries spend less than 2% of government funds in treatment and prevention but lose anywhere between $16million to $2billion a year since 2017.
Mental disorders frequently lead individuals and families into poverty. Homelessness and inappropriate incarceration is far more common for people with mental disorders than for the general population, and exacerbate their marginalization and vulnerability. This annual Mental Health Impact Design Sprint will focus on crowdsourcing relevant and applicable solutions to life applicability areas,we call; ‘tracks’.
