About Minding Your Mind

Minding Your Mind is a mental health education foundation providing information regarding signs and symptoms of mental health issues and illnesses, in addition to stressing that they are treatable and help is available. The goal is to break the silence, to reduce the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health issues and illnesses, and to move away from crisis-based response to prevention through education.
