The NAN Project is an initiative designed to reduce the stigma around mental health concerns in young people, using schools as a platform to deliver a message of hope and support. The NAN Project coaches young people with lived experience to tell their Comeback Stories of struggling with mental health issues and finding their road to recovery. These Peer Mentors tell their stories to high school students to help develop the conversation around mental health and emotional well-being, with the goal of establishing up a group within the school to carry out ongoing activities in the community throughout the year. The NAN Project also sponsors speakers to address community stakeholders about the signs, risks and responses to mental health concerns and suicidality. Professional Development is also offered to school staff so that they are better equipped to recognize mental health issues, before they reach a crisis point. Through this programming, we hope to reduce the stigma around mental health so that young people understand they are not alone and their is help and there is hope.
