Who We Are
Sarah embraced the chance to build Wellbeing Connection, the type of organization she’d always needed. Her passion for creating a community-wide safe space for sharing has grown with each brave, personal story she hears from others. Sarah works to create a network of organizations, care providers and partners to support us all. Now, we are excited to be bring that same type of safe space for teens with our new project, Teen Connection.
WBC Board Member
Jack graduated from NAHS in 2021 and interned with Wellbeing Connection for his senior seminar project. Through his own personal experience as well as his internship, he saw a lack of resources for teens. He wanted his peers to have the resources he felt he was needing. With the help of WBC, we began creating Teen Connection (TC). Jack wanted to destigmitize mental health treatment and mental illness for his peers and the community. TC was created to empower teens to feel like they can openly discuss and seek treatment, while also helping others get connected to mental health resources.
Xiyonne is a senior at New Albany High School. She joined and helped create Teen Connection as a founding member because of one concept: accessibility. The mental health resources in her life haven’t been affordable, easy to find, or inclusive enough for her to feel truly helped-and she wants to change that for good.
