It is our mission to evolve pedagogy, mobilize capital and drive progress that advances the impact that urban public schools have on the mental health of black students by creating fair learning experiences for all students and by providing access to free counseling sessions to black students.

mental health treatment Stats

Our target is Middle School & High School ages 11-17

 

It is apparent to us that developing and incorporating stress reduction techniques in the learning environments of teenagers and adolescents is a critical matter. 

In 2019 older children were more likely to have received any mental health treatment.

Children aged 12–17 years were more likely to have received any mental health treatment (including having taken prescription medication and received counseling or therapy from a mental health professional) in the past 12 months (16.8%) compared with children aged 5–11 years (10.8%).

We primarily serve students who identify as African American.

We are committed to serving a high percentage of the students and families that identify as African American  and  have historically been systematically oppressed and marginalized. 

We primarily serve communities in urban areas where the need is greater.

Urbanism influenced the percentage of students who received treatment in 2019.

As the level of urbanization decreased, the percentage of children who received any mental health treatment or had taken medication for their mental health increased. 

 

The percentage of children who had received any mental health treatment in the past 12 months increased as the place of residence became less urban.

We support urban public middle and high schools in the Oakland California that are racially segregated and traditionally receive less funding and resources . The urban schools we work with typically serve low income students and families who face economic disadvantages. 

Boys were more likely than girls to have received any mental health treatment.

Boys (14.8%) were more likely than girls (12.4%) to have received any mental health treatment in the past 12 months

Although we serve all genders we recognize that black girls have serious unmet mental health needs and have designed a program specific to their needs. 

In 2019, white children were more likely to receive any mental health treatment.

 

Non-Hispanic white children were more likely than Hispanic or non-Hispanic black children to have received any mental health treatment in the past 12 months. 

 Black girls, in particular, face unique stressors that are compounded by the intersection of race and gender identities. Negative sociocultural experiences rooted in racism, discrimination, and sexism contribute to their emotional pain.
