Our team is consulting with nonprofits and other stakeholders to bring free, science-based, relatable mental health support tools to Spanish-speaking youth.

 

El Viaje Heroico: Edición en Español will include tools for learning:

  • Healthy identity

  • Emotion management

  • Self-compassion

  • Resilience 

  • Empathy

  • Multi-cultural inclusion

  • Conflict resolution

  • How to seek help

  • How to navigate peer pressure

  • How to end bullying, racism, misogyny, cyberbullying, and other forms of injustice

We must change the trajectory for Spanish-speaking youth and mental health.

 

We must offer free, science-based, accessible 

mental health resources to children and teens.
