The Story.

Innovator(s)

Jeff Short works at Overflow which helps get ideas adopted with non profits. His role with Zero Reasons Why comes from a passion of inspiring teen voices against mental health stigma.

Problem

How might we decrease the anxiety about mental health in order to increase teen engagement?

Solution

Our solution is to create touch points to our teens through increasing our online presence via Instagram and our website. As well as, strengthening relationships among the Teen Council with incentives for participation.

Target Market

The people affected by this problem are teens and a lack of conversation among them regarding mental health in any form.

Societal Impact

Teens are the future and teaching them at a young age how important their mental health is can eliminate a lot of struggle for them as adults and create a more evolving society.

Next Steps

We plan to implement touch-points in order to strengthen our teen council and after strengthening our teen council and online presence, we plan to host in person events in the Kansas City community.

Reflection

This work has taught us the value of knowledge and understanding of that knowledge. Knowledge can disrupt systems, break stigmas and evolve our society.

Use of Backer Contributions

We are not currently accepting contributions from our voters. This pitch is part of the ProX competition for $5,000. Our money will go towards a social media marketing specialist and instagram adds in order to increase our online platform as well as towards teen incentives to increase participation amongst our members.
