What are participants saying about the Healing Youth Alliance presentations:

  • A truly heartfelt, personal, informed perspective on the mental health challenges facing our youth, with real-world, accessible solutions. These organizers need to come to every school. Every community center. Absolutely inspiring.
  • The trainers provided a very clear and succinct message, about self-care and trauma, in ways that were accessible, relatable, and showed a nuanced knowledge of mental health. I greatly appreciated their candor and willingness to be vulnerable in their presentations. I will use their suggestions for how to broach these topics with young people I work with.
  • This was truly an inspiring, enriching and empowering experience that showcased the brilliance and amazing power of our youth. I will help identify several organizations that would benefit from a presentation by the HYA ambassadors.
  • It was my first time and it was truly an amazing experience. I learned so much from Jima and Sydney. It was nice learning from them because we are only a year apart.
