Mental Health Initiative
Mental Health among our youth is EXTREMLY important. According to World Health Organization approximately 15%–20% of children and adolescents are suffering from some form of mental health disorder. Furthermore, 70% of mental health disorders onset prior to the age of 25, making the adolescent years a critical window in which mental health can be promoted, and mental health problems can be addressed.
Pretty Me Inc incorporates positive mental health activities, lessons, and outings into our program. In addition, we also end each group session with what we call "Mental Health Moments with Monique". During this time our mentees and mentors are taught a variety of skills to help manage and maintain a positive, and healthy state of mind. This is led by licensed clinical therapist, Monique Johnson, LCPC, NCC, RPT, who specializes in working with youth and families.
