Marketing
Awareness
Announcement

Awareness aims to spread knowledge of mental health and neuroscience, with a specialization in neurological disorders, destigmatizing mental health in adolescent communities, and making the field of neuroscience more accessible. We create content guides and connect with mental health experts to figure out ways we can contribute to making mental health easier to talk about in our own communities.
