Join the Youth Mental Health Awareness Campaign!

It’s National Suicide Prevention Week, and what better time to launch our youth mental health awareness campaign "Free Your Feels"? Free Your Feels encourages Georgia's young people to explore their real feelings and share them fearlessly.

With our children and teens empowered to speak out and express their real feelings, adults and peers tuned in and listening judgment-free, and everyone connected to available resources, we will see a healthier, thriving generation.

Visit the "Free Your Feels" website

which will house a collection of resources from different organizations and agencies, and will include ready-to-use editable graphics so you can easily promote and share messaging!
