HEADSTRONG Program Overview

HEADSTRONG is an initiative built to inspire youth to become leaders in their schools. HEADSTRONG leaders challenge stigma, raise mental health awareness, and promote mental wellness and early help-seeking.

The program was developed by the MHCC after five years of research with educators and students.

The MHCC recognizes that young people bring great passion, courage, and empathy to efforts to tackle important social issues.

HEADSTRONG knows that youth are an important influence on their peers and can use this power to generate positive and permanent change.
