The conversation around mental health is growing. Young people are finding the courage to share their struggles and ask for support, but often their friends and families don’t know how to respond. Jack.org is working to change that. We envision a world where every young person is comfortable talking about their mental health, and those who need support get the help they deserve.
Let’s educate ourselves to recognize when someone is struggling and learn how to properly support one another.
