Self-Care Support is a website designed to motivate and encourage individuals to help improve their mental health. By connecting teens and changemakers in one community, and by also providing free resources and recommendations, one main goal is to bring more awareness to mental health issues and mental illnesses. Users may share their own stories and motivations in our forum, and they may also connect with and chat with new people with similar interests. Through our partners (in various fields such as STEM, business, medicine, mental health, global issues/activism, and more), we are also creating a platform where high-school students can further educate themselves in issues they care about or in subjects they are passionate about through workshops, events, leadership and volunteer opportunities, magazines, articles, and much more, led by our incredible community of entrepreneurs. We hope to inspire youth through our interviews with incredible changemakers and entrepreneurs. Thanks to a grant from Points of Light, we were able to make this idea possible.
