The Mind Elevation (ME.) Project is looking for youth influencers ages 13 to 19 from across the state of Mississippi to help promote youth access to high-quality mental health and wellness and sexual and reproductive health and wellness.  These influencers will address a variety of topics facing youth, including but not limited to: relationships, consent, depression, anxiety, birth control access, body confidence, LGBTQ allyship, and friendship.

Mind Elevation Goals

  • Increase knowledge of Mississippi youth ages 13 to 19 in ways that support youth mental health and wellness and sexual and reproductive health and wellness.
  • Build a statewide networking strategy that is both on-the-ground and social media-driven to increase youth access to vetted, high-quality mental health and sexual and reproductive health resources.
  • Use the power of storytelling and illustrations  to reflect the experiences of Mississippi youth.
  • Empower youth to get involved in their communities.
