Welcome to Stress Free Teens, where we help fight the mental health epidemic by identifying, illuminating, and demystifying these issues in our community.
Who We Are
DEMYSTIFYING MENTAL HEALTH
Here at Stress Free Teens, we are driven by a single goal: to do our part in making the world a better place for all.
Our mission is to educate communities about the science behind mental health and to provide advocacy so that those affected—anyone and everyone—can lead happier lives.
Our vision is to uncover the causes behind mental health, destigmatize the perceptions toward it, and revolutionize community knowledge addressing it; in doing so, we hope to cultivate a true understanding of mental health.
Our goal is to commit to outreach in communities by educating local students and leaders in various avenues and to cultivate necessary discussions through planned events; it is our hope that these actions will reduce the incidence of mental health as well as the plethora of implications that arise from it.
