A Peacemaking Project by Khaliah B.
What is the injustice we are solving?
I will educate youth in the Promise Zone of St. Louis about the importance of Mental Health. In this particular area, youth are not educated about the meaning of Mental Health and how it affects every person despite any demographic. Youth have a preconceived idea, a stigma, about mental illnesses even though it affects a great number of them. Areas surrounding the Promise Zone are supplied with in school licensed therapist, pamplets, and free screenings. Simple knowing the basis could change someones life and how they live it. It could also promote the youth wanting to understand each other and themselves on a deeper level.
