Community Programs for Mental Health

Our vision is a world without suicide and a community of people with optimal mental health. Since 2010, 1N5 has been leading transformational mental health work in the Cincinnati region. Our mission is to prevent suicide by erasing the stigma around mental illness and promoting optimal mental wellness.

1N5 partners with community organizations and universities to normalize mental health and break down the barriers preventing our youth from seeking help. Because every community is unique, there is not a one-size-fits-all model. 


  • Create and implement customized, evidence-based mental health programming plans for communities
  • Increase knowledge of signs and symptoms of mental illness and suicide
  • Build protective favors by increasing knowledge of healthy coping skills
  • Decrease the stigma of mental illness and suicide in communities
