Empowering Young Minds

Understanding what mental health is and how to look after it should be a basic human right. Instead, what many receive is an immense amount of stigma.

 

Without being equipped with knowledge and skills to take care of mental health, many are left vulnerable to experiencing mental health issues, with little to no idea of how to cope. Sadly mental health issues plague our younger populations, with suicide being the leading cause of death in 15 - 29 year olds globally. Something needs to shift.

 

Alexa seeks to empower young people to promote and maintain their mental health, as well as to know how and where to seek support in managing mental health issues.
