“The day after President Biden underscored the country’s unprecedented mental health crisis during his State of the Union address, MTV Entertainment Group is solidifying plans for its inaugural Mental Health Youth Action Forum, in coordination with the Biden-Harris administration. ” (Forbes)

“The two-day forum in Washington, D.C. will include creative and skill-building workshops, brainstorming sessions with nonprofit mentors and industry professionals, and a captivating program that will include talent and senior officials from the Biden-Harris Administration. From the hundreds of applications received, there were 30 young people who stood out for their commitment to mental health activism, their digital and creative skill sets, and their deep appreciation for the possibilities that this exciting opportunity will bring. We are excited by the amazing work they will do together to drive mental health actions in their communities.” (Mental Health is Health)
