Who are we?

Get to know us and join us!


Approximately 5.4% of the US population suffers from severe mental illness, a broad category of disorders ranging from depression to ADHD. In Los Angeles County, minorities make up the biggest slice of the population affected by depression, and many more remain undiagnosed due to cultural stigma. Mental Health Initiative seeks to stamp out stigma and offer support to at-risk populations through education, community service, and licensed provider referrals. Unlike other organizations that focus on campus events, we go directly to high schools, community colleges, libraries, nursing homes, and health events to educate the public about mental wellness. We provide workshops for members who want to take charge of their own mental health. We also make connections with UCLA psychologists to extend counseling to underserved communities. In doing so, we aim to promote wellness throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Mental health should not be second to physical health. Take the initiative for mental health awareness by joining Mental Health Initiative.
