About Our Cause.

Our goal is to STOP the stigma and START the conversation by increasing awareness and education about mental health.

1N5 is focused on making a difference in how we talk about mental health. Our youth are in crisis, with 20% of youth ages 13-18 living with a mental health condition. Join us to START the conversation, together we can make a positive difference and STOP the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Let’s talk!
