There are many reasons teens struggle with mental health. There are #ZeroReasonsWhy we should struggle alone.
#ZeroReasonsWhy is a teen-led storytelling and community mobilization campaign to remove the stigma of mental health and prevent teen suicide.
Adult voices have often been at the center of mental health conversations, but through the #ZeroReasonsWhy platform, teen voice is amplified. We share stories and perspectives to dismantle the stigma of mental health. We believe that reducing that stigma allows us to ask for help without shame or judgment. If we accomplish that, we believe we’ll see teen suicide decrease in our communities. It takes all of us—teens, parents, educators, health professionals and the community—to remove the stigma of mental health, foster community support, improve education and increase awareness to prevent teen suicide.
