Our Foundations class explores the subject of mental health and well-being using our six Building Blocks in a way that’s easy to understand, share with others, and immediately put into action.

Our goal is to help you increase your mental health literacy, resiliency, and hope by showing you how to Build a Foundation that Supports a Healthy You at home, at school, at work and at play.

20% of children have a mental health disorder and only 20% of those get the help they need

Did you know that 50% of all mental health disorders develop by the age of 14, when a young person is starting high school? And that 75% of all mental illness develops by the age of 24?

Mental health disorders do not discriminate and affect every school and every neighborhood across the country. The good news is that mental illness is a health disorder that IS treatable. Education and awareness are essential in early detection, seeking help and realizing “You are NOT alone!”

SPN Survivors is looking for the young Supernatural fan who attended ChiCon 2013 and asked Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles about suicide at the end of their panel. That moment forever changed our lives and an open letter has been written to her in hopes that she will contact us. If you know who this person is, please let her (or her family) know we would love to talk to her. Thank you!
