Canarsie youth mental health movement
Research confirms that youth of color play an essential role in the community as change agents. Youth of color could create lasting racial change, help Black and Latino community members build trust with one another, and bridge the gap in Black and Brown communities between unmet mental health needs and mental health care.

· Goal 2 (optional): To bring the entire Canarsie High School community to awareness about mental and the access to mental health by using our app.
OUTCOMES: Please write down the outcomes you hope to achieve for this project

· Outcome 2: reaching the entire family together to address mental stigma by way of an app.
