Using awareness and education we empower individuals and organizations to save lives by fostering mental well-being with a focus on compassion, connection, and conversation.

  • Secure that number of pledges in support of mental health and suicide awareness, education and actions.
  • Raise funds (a minimum of $1 annually for each suicide attempt or death) to support our initiatives.
  • Provide a process for anyone to apply for funds for a project they want to implement to progress the mission.
  • Provide tools that make awareness, education and action accessible to all leveraging AI for good. 

Team and Alliance Building:

  • Build alliances with organization with complimentary missions that we can amplify our joint messages. 
  • Engage the community by providing a platform and opportunities for individuals to engage and contribute to the mission (including submitting proposals to leverage the funding for projects that help us reach our goals).  Special consideration for projects coming from High School and College Students.

What does it mean to foster mental well-being?

To foster mental well-being means to actively support and promote the mental health and emotional resilience of individuals, communities, and societies. In our mission, it is not only to help you as an individual empower yourself, but for you to help empower and foster others. Think of it as polishing a mirror, not just to admire your reflection, but to ensure it shines brightly, helping others find their way through life’s darkness. It’s about actively championing the mental health and emotional strength of individuals, communities, and societies by sharing your growth through challenges. Think of it as crafting a beacon, not just for yourself, but for those around you.
