Society's lack of understanding toward teens with mental illness
A Peacemaking Project by Abby D.
What is the injustice we are solving?
The daughter of my mom's good friend committed suicide at age 14 because she was suffering from mental illness, and bullied through social media as a result. I want to help bring awareness to this tragic situation.
"To Solve the Injustice of Mental illness is not taken seriously, we will address Help spread awareness of the seriousness of mental illness, and the commonality found in young people, much of it stemming from social media., by creating an event that gets students to donate art, perform, that would raise money for mental illness hotline. This would be taking art/ creativity from young adults, and using it to help kids that are suffering from mental illness."
