Our mission is to provide a collaborative environment for students to learn about topics in social medicine, as well as highlight important news and women in medicine. MedSoc Talk is here to encourage future leaders to be educated about the social and economic disparities in medicine in order to enact necessary positive change within the field.
We are an international non-profit organization dedicated towards manufacturing and distributing rape kits to hospitals in Asian countries while raising advocacy for culturally stigmatized topics.
Publishing weekly – usually on Tuesdays – since 2013, Care for Your Mind (CFYM) brings together people involved with and affected by mood disorders in the search for solutions to the problems in our mental health care system. On CFYM, we discuss issues of access to and quality of mental health care in the United States. Care for Your Mind provides a platform for perspectives on problems – and potential solutions – from policy makers, clinicians and researchers, mental health experts, health care reform advocates, and the occasional legislator or other government official, along with personal experiences of people living with mood disorders and their families.
Our mission is to make sure no young person feels alone in their depression. We are dedicated to creating a community of empathy and education. We create middle school and high school teen depression awareness programs so educators and teens can create safe spaces to learn about depression, letting students know they are never alone, and there is somewhere to turn.
Families for Depression Awareness helps families recognize and cope with depression and bipolar disorder to get people well and prevent suicides. We offer education, training, and support to unite families and help them heal while coping with mood disorders.
Our founder, Jamie Tworkowski, didn’t set out to start a nonprofit organization. All he wanted to do was help a friend and tell her story. When Jamie met Renee Yohe, she was struggling with addiction, depression, self-injury, and suicidal thoughts. He wrote about the five days he spent with her before she entered a treatment center, and he sold T-shirts to help cover the cost. When she entered treatment, he posted the story on MySpace to give it a home. The name of the story was “To Write Love on Her Arms.”
We serve unaccompanied homeless and at risk youth – and young parents with children of their own – up to their 25th birthday. Our ongoing mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness. To do this, we have built four core programs in many of the cities where we operate in volunteer teams: Street Outreach, Outreach Centers, Mentoring, and Housing. We are quite proud of the fact that our volunteer teams build trust and become a consistent resource to stabilize and otherwise help those youth that the rest of society ignored.
