Welcome to Atlas
When it comes to mental health*, community matters.
Atlas has a simple mission: our goal is to empower communities with the knowledge and tools they need to keep themselves and those around them mentally healthy.
You’re part of the most vulnerable demographic when it comes to mental illness. Over 30% of teenagers struggle with anxiety. Close to 20% of teenage girls have clinical depression. One in 6 high school students seriously considered killing themselves this past year. In light of the rise in student suicides and school shootings, we want to make sure that no student slips through the cracks and is left unseen by their community.
We need a culture change when it comes to mental health, and that culture changes starts with you. We want to empower you with the knowledge to reduce mental health stigma, the skills to help you look out for your peers, and the inspiration you need to be more proactive about your own mental health.
High school can be difficult but no one should go through it alone. We’ll help you carry the weight of your own world. We’re Atlas.
Welcome to our family.
