About Young Ones- Breaking Barriers Organization
At Young Ones, we dream of a future in which there are no social and economic barriers to impede the life and recovery of youth with mental illness. We envision changing the social barriers, which those with mental illness face, by providing anti-stigma education. We envision changing the economic barriers by raising funds to ease the financial burden that youth with mental illness, concurrent disorders and addictions struggle with. We hope to see a world where living with a mental illness is not a mark of shame, rather another signifier of individual difference and unique experience.
