Thursday, March 8 -

Calling teachers, faith based youth leaders, scout leaders, parents and student leadership groups !
We are calling to action all teen aspiring film makers, advertisers, actors, social media stars, future business leaders (middle and high school age) for a community service opportunity titled "Connecting With Our Communities" for May is Mental Health Month.
WHY? Because 1 in 5 youth ages 13-18 have, or will have a serious mental illness and JUST LIKE ANY OTHER DISEASE, the earlier the intervention, the better the outcome!
