Having been thru tough times during my youth, I see an organization in Minding Your Mind created by the pure of heart, run by the conscientious and served by the target audience who desperately need us. All too often we attribute a plethora of actions in our youth as growing pains when in reality many young adults are silently suffering. This program allows the individual to come forward without shame to express their deepest feelings in a safe, positive manner whilst becoming proactive to encourage, foster the most positive paths. It brings light to so many who are hurting in a darkness no one should have to endure. Minding Your Mind has helped to create a community of sharing, kindness and practical resources. I am highly impressed with this program for helping to lift the stigmas to get to root issues for a better tomorrow for us all.
It's time for all of us to pay attention if we honestly want a better, healthier world.

Minding Your Mind is providing mental health education to adolescents. While this topic is often avoided, it is important that young adults learn the signs of symptoms of these illnesses as the age of onset is during the teen years.
