EVERY PERSON MATTERS

The Uyeno Foundation envisions a community where mental health support services and educational tools for individuals and families are accessible and attainable for all.

Through funding initiatives that promote positive mental health through prevention, intervention, treatment, and education, we can move one step toward the vision of a community without barriers to access for mental health support services, regardless of income or ability to pay.

Through partnership with local boots on the ground organizations, the Uyeno Foundation provides grant funding to support the efforts of local mental health services in the Southwest Florida area.

Workplace Mental Health

Employers should not only promote mental health in the workplace, as it is a great opportunity to help employees but because poor mental health in employees can negatively affect a business. It has been reported that in the United States, 1 in 5 adults struggle with mental health which can lead to less productivity, disengagement at work, decreased communication with coworkers, and lower daily functioning.

Mother’s Mental Health

Mothers are more likely to experience mental illness because of the mental demand and extreme pressures of motherhood. It does not help that for many women, especially moms, their feelings are often dismissed by others as hormones.

Back to School Mental Health

While going back to school is exciting, it can also be very stressful for many students. There is a lot of pressure about making new friends, keeping up with the new trends, doing well in school, sports, and other activities. For many kids who do not know how to express their feelings, this can often present as not wanting to go to school.

Negative Effects of Social Media

While social media has many positives, it can also have negative side effects on mental health, especially for kids and teens. Some of the more significant side effects include anxiety and depression.
