Talk At The Top
We were thrilled to hear that Talk at the Top was a huge success, providing students with tangible skills to lead mental health change in their communities.
Jack.org is a national charity dedicated to supporting community-embedded, youth leadership in mental health promotion, advocacy and education.
Their mission is to create a national network of passionate young leaders focused on a cultural shift in the mental health conversation and to activate the network of leaders to create systems level change.
Jack.org envisions a world free from the stigma that surrounds mental health; a world where everyone will discuss and treat their mental health just like they do their physical health; a world where everyone who is struggling will ask for and receive help and knows where to get it; a world where we all know how to support those closest to us.
Jack.org’s young leaders are central to designing and implementing their own work. With youth leading their efforts in this way, we ensure their activities are in line with their own community values, while also providing guidance and resources so they can be safe, effective, and sustainable over time.
