EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT

MISSION: The Uyeno Foundation seeks to fund initiatives that promote positive mental health through prevention, intervention, treatment, and education.

  • Mental health education removes the stigma associated with disease.

  • When parents are receiving the care that they need, the whole family benefits.

  • Through prevention and support services, children suffering with mental illness can see positive change before long-term effects set in.

“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching out and lifting people up.”

Joanne Uyeno • Founder

WHY MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
