Did you know that 1 in 5 children in the U.S. has a diagnosable mental health condition? Sadly, less than 20 percent of them receive the treatment needed to live healthy, productive lives. In honor of mental health awareness month, we partnered with Wanderlust Hollywood on May 14, 2019, to support the efforts of the Youth Mental Health Project.
The YMH is one of our partner organizations here at Corc Yoga. Their mission is to educate, empower, and support families and communities to better understand and care for the mental health of our youth.
We took over the Wanderlust Hollywood studio for the day to provide free classes. All of the classes were free of charge. Students who attended were encouraged to make a donation to the Youth Mental Health Project.
Having faced her own mental health challenges during her teenage years, our founder, Christine is passionate about organizations that support the health and well being of our youth. Through her personal experience, she understands the importance of assisting these youths and their families through the trials they face. Together with the YMH we can provide the love and support these children need to help them live a healthy, productive life.
