Grow with the Flow Foundation

Donation protected
Over 40 million Americans are battling a mental illness. 56% of those don't get the help they need. More specifically, 39% of students are battling a mental illness and 67% of those young adults do not seek help. Often, this is because of the cost of mental health care.

My name is Ashley Cunningham. I am the founder and president of Grow with the Flow. Ever since a young age I knew I was wired a little different. Confused, frustrated, and scared of my own thoughts and feelings. Some feelings just too hard to explain. My mental illness had been as debilitating as any physical injury or illness. Battling with yourself is no easy task and I am so proud to say that I am currently living a happy and healthy life thanks to my family, health care professionals, and various treatments. I overcame the toughest battle of my life and if I can do that, then I can do anything. It pains me to know that there are many others out there going through what I have gone through. Even more painful that some young adults don't have the support, resources and funding to get that help. I created this foundation with the hopes to make a difference in someone else’s life. To show them they are never alone!

Grow with the Flow's primary goal is to support, educate, and raise funds for young adults battling a mental illness. Below is a brief overview of what we are looking to accomplish as a non-profit organization but in order to become officially and legally registered with the state of MA, we need some help!

​Support: We look towards creating a community for mental health survivors and warriors by putting together support groups. We think this will be a great way to meet new friends, find a mentor, or be a beacon of hope for others.

​Educate: The reason there is a stigma behind mental illness is because society is not well informed on this topic. To help others better understand we look to host virtual interviews with different health care professionals, survivors, etc. We intend to use our social media platforms by posting tips and tricks, sharing scientific evidence, and start a conversation.

​Raise: Our largest goal is to provide funding for those struggling to cover therapy, treatment, and or medication costs. Throughout the year you will be able to nominate a student living with a mental illness for our scholarship program. All one would need to do is tell us your/his/hers/their story, provide a student id, and a letter of recommendation from a healthcare professional showing proof of diagnosis. In May, during mental health awareness month we hope to announce our scholarship winner(s).

Let’s not be naïve anymore. It’s time to acknowledge mental health!
