WHO WE ARE.
Mental Q is committed to finding creative ways to raise additional funds and awareness for passionate local youth mental health initiatives.
We are two creative, passionate women who don't do anything half-assed. After many successful events, some a little OTT (over-the-top), we began to focus our energy towards a cause. One late night, after chatting for hours, we decided that its time to give a F@&# about mental health…and Mental Q was born.
70% of Mental Health issues begin in childhood and adolescence; because of this statistic, we refuse to be silent and decided to do something to support youth mental health.
Mental Q (Quotient) means to personally assess your feelings and thoughts consciously. Learning to spot the 'cues' in yourself and others, and to work towards and maintain positive mental health.
We believe that everyone deserves to live in a world
that supports mental health & wellness.
Fundraising & Event Planning Badass
I’m a mama of 2 teens, personal chef and mental health promotor. Mental Health issues have touched my life personally and many people I love. I am passionate about helping youth, whether it is through coaching, mentoring or being a friend. Through conversation and understanding I believe we can make a difference in our own community. It takes a village, people!
Fundraising & Event Planning Renegade
I’m a den mother of 3 teenage boys and have a love for details and all things creative. No nonsense and tell it like it is, I never shy away from telling my story of mental health struggles, successes and how I cope with the affects on my life. I truly believe that we are on the cusp of change. Identifying mental health issues early, learning to speak up, general awareness and acceptance can soon be the norm.
