We produce public awareness campaigns using unconventional methods to promote a better understanding of mental health. We typically do this by leveraging sponsors, free media, social networks, friends and family.
The biggest impact we can make in mental health education and awareness are engaging those in their most impressionable age. We proactively work with the school systems, teachers, and other youth programs in Regina to provide workshops, speaker forums and education seminars on mental health. The average age of the UnderstandUs family is 28 years old, making us relatable, approachable and supportive to youth spanning all ages. We attempt to act as leaders, mentors and friends to kids and teens who need it.
We believe in creating a community of mental health ambassadors. Those who are fearless in showing their support and raising awareness for the better understanding of mental health. We believe our UnderstandUs apparel and merchandise can be a unifier for our supporters that helps further break down the misrepresentation of those affected by mental health barriers. All proceeds from merchandise sales go towards break-even costs, the development of youth programs/school curriculum initiatives, and awareness campaigns.
We strive to better the communities we live in and get the message of positive mental health to as many people as possible. Whether it is charitable events, health fairs, speaking engagements or music festivals we look to be an outlet and a voice for the mental health community.
