Mission: The mission of 1N5 is to prevent suicide by erasing the stigma of mental illness and promoting optimal mental wellness.

Serving Our Community:

Our work is divided into five overlapping and intersecting pillars: stigma reduction; community engagement; education and programming; policy and advocacy; and measurement and data. Stigma Reduction: Through storytelling, community conversations, and educational events 1N5 works to decrease the stigma associated with mental health. Policy and Advocacy: It is crucial to advocate for policy change at the state and federal level to support mental health education and protect those with mental illness. Education and Programming: 1N5 supports evidence-based education and programs in 82 local schools and all six local universities. Measurement and Data: One of our goals is to use data to change the landscape of mental health. Currently, we are adapting all of our school programming to meet the needs of virtual or hybrid learning. There is an immense need to support the mental health of youth and educators and we are working to meet them where they are.
