Let’s create a world where we can all better support one another.  

More

We surveyed 1,200 young people; 83% said they’ve supported a friend struggling with their mental health. Only 39% of them felt they were prepared to offer the support that was needed. That’s not good enough. Let’s make it 100%.

Why?

Just talking about mental health isn’t enough. We need the knowledge, skills and confidence to step up and be there for one another.

How?

Education. We need to learn to recognize when someone is struggling, lean into tough conversations and provide the support we all deserve.

When?

Right now. Be There gives you 5 Golden Rules to guide you and shares stories from young people putting the Golden Rules to work.

Got questions?

No worries, Be There’s got you covered.

Join the Revolution

The conversation around mental health is growing. Young people are finding the courage to share their struggles and ask for support, but often their friends and families don’t know how to respond. Jack.org is working to change that. We envision a world where every young person is comfortable talking about their mental health, and those who need support get the help they deserve.
 
Let’s educate ourselves to recognize when someone is struggling and learn how to properly support one another.
