end the stigma.

An initiative of the Child Mind Institute, Project UROK is an inclusive community with expert mental health resources for teens and young adults who are committed to ending the stigma and isolation of struggling with mental illness.


#MyYoungerSelf brings together dozens of actors, Olympians, authors, comedians, businesspeople, and influencers each sharing a message of hope and strength to their younger selves about growing up with a mental health or learning disorder. Our goal is to eliminate stigma by showing children and adolescents that there is a bright future if they open up and ask for help.
