I have joined the YEA because I felt like there was a real need for action surrounding mental health in the community. After attending my first few meetings I could really see the amazing things being done such as the wellness kits, as just one example). YEA has really helped show me strengths that I didn’t know I had, built my leadership skills, allowed me to have conversations with those of different views and opinions, and really allowed me to break out of my shell.
