THE CHRIS COLLINS FOUNDATION
The Chris Collins Foundation is funding a Peer-to-Peer Mental Health Awareness program in middle and high schools. This evidence-based, student-led program is built on the premise that many mental health disorders first present themselves during adolescence and teens are more likely to listen to other teens than well-meaning adults. The P2P program, developed by the University of Michigan Depression Center, educates students about anxiety, depression and other depressive illnesses, and supports them in finding creative ways to convey this knowledge to their peers in order to reduce stigma, raise awareness, and encourage help-seeking when needed.
