As a nonprofit Coalition, we partner with like-minded entities and experts who use popular forms of media and culture to provide support and inclusion to people with disabilities, as well as other marginalized populations. This work includes:
Our Never Alone tools, including videos, provide mental health support to LGBTQIA+ youth.
Lights…Camera…Identity! Never Alone is an original comic book published by the Coalition to provide mental health support for LGBTQIA+ youth. We have donated 10,000 copies to youth in need and our team is preparing for a third edition.

The H.E.R.O.I.C. program serves two purposes:
Teaching children with serious physical disabilities: resilience, healthy identity, breaking barriers, and other crucial mental health and life skills.
Teaching the peers of children with disabilities: inclusion, ending marginalization, and becoming an ally.
Completely paralyzed except for the use of one hand, Coalition Disabilities Program Coordinator Scott Palm is a veteran educator who is presenting this one-hour program via his communication device (AAC) in age-appropriate versions to schools K-12 in the Seattle area. A version of this presentation for adults with disabilities and their loved ones and caregivers is also available.
Written by Dr. Janina Scarlet, SuperKids! is the first interactive mental health coloring book, written for children with cancer and other illness, helping them navigate loneliness, anxiety, and depression — and helping them to develop healthy identity beyond the illness. We have donated 1000 copies to children in need, and our team is preparing for a second edition.
