We are a grassroots, peer-led organization, whose mission is to improve the quality of life for people living with mental illness.
Bottom Line for Portland
We are raising funds to support an amazing mental health awareness program for youth in our community. This program, Ending the Silence, has a huge impact on teens who are often resistant to talk about mental health. Here, we go out to middle and high schools, and have young adults share their own mental health stories ~ talking about their own struggles and steps toward personal recovery. We also share information so they can get help for themselves, or recognize when a friend is struggling and guide them toward support.
In addition to this program, funds will support our community helpline, classes, peer and family supports, and crisis intervention services. Our goal is to connect people with one another and community resources, and to help people achieve their goals. All of our programs are free-of-charge to participants.
"I think it is really important that we normalize talking about mental health and illnesses because it is so common and growing up I feel like it was never talked about and was a "not okay" topic."
“I think the presenters are strong, amazing people. This program lets people know that they are not alone.”
“I think it is awesome that they are presenting this to kids our age because it helps us know how to deal with this type of stuff that may come up in our lives. Thank you so much to the presenters for coming,”
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
First and foremost, our staff and volunteers represent the community we serve. All of our staff identify as peers (individuals living with mental health challenges) and/or parents of children with behavioral health conditions. Beyond this, we have staff who identify as Black/African-American, Native American, Latinx, LGBTQ+, and Veterans so we can offer culturally-specific services to community members with these shared lived experiences.
