Help us create a Mental Health Training course!

Since the pandemic, social norms and human contact has diminished which has resulted in even higher rates of mental health issues. If we do not take this massive disruption seriously, students will suffer with increased depression, suicide ideation, anxiety, isolation, and attention and learning issues. 

It's clear that children are facing a mental health crisis and it will only get worse if no action is taken.


We are Team Project RISE , a group of independent female professionals who advocate for schools to provide teachers and educators with the training necessary to better identify and support students with mental health struggles. 

After meeting with countless U.S. Representatives, teacher's unions, and non-profit organizations, we have been told that "there is no money in the budget" to create or provide this training to educators and anyone who works with children.

So, rather than wait for governmental action, we made the decision to create and produce our own mental health training program and share it with as many people as possible to help everyone that experiences mental health struggles.

We estimate this training program will cost at least $10,000 to produce, and approximately $4,000 for media, marketing, and initial distribution . We are shooting the training video on July 24th. Our goal is for the program to be available before the Fall 2021 school year. 

We are hoping we can get your help to fund this important program so we can begin production early July.

Please donate what you can and share this petition with your friends!
