Learn to safely support someone struggling with their mental health.

The conversation around mental health is growing. Young people are finding the courage to share their struggles and ask for support, but often their friends and families don’t know how to respond. That's where Be There comes in. We envision a world where every young person is comfortable talking about their mental health, and those who need support get the help they deserve.
