Why is this needed?
Mental health issues in America are grossly overlooked, and awareness of the reality of these issues needs to be spread. Proper coping skills are not taught in an accessible way early on for people who struggle with anger-issues, anxiety, and/or self-harm. Even small health benefits such as the access to vitamin D for depressive symptoms are not talked about. Parents are unequipped to help their children when they suffer from detrimental mental health symptoms because of the lack of conversation and commonplace support centers made to aid both the children and parents through the recovery process. All of these reasons and more are why I wanted to create a website to address these issues and help adolescents and parents in need.
