WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"I had a pretty good breakthrough with my son last night after the amazing event. It was great to hear from the teens about their perspective on "how" they want to connect with their parents. Keep up the good work and thanks again for introducing this group to my life!”
“We had such a wonderful experience with Trusted Sources, both in preparing for the recent events, as well as benefiting from the services and resources you all have provided our church family and community! We're still hearing positive comments from students, parents, grandparents, etc. about how meaningful the sessions were.”
"Attending the Moms for Moms event was a delightful experience. The gourmet food prepared by the chef was a true treat, and the discussions about teen depression were both enlightening and relatable. I left with valuable tips on how to better connect with my child, and the abundance of resources and support offered made this event a game-changer for us moms. Thank you for an unforgettable evening"
Even the greatest communities acknowledge that there is a mental health crisis with our youth.
The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the Children’s Hospital Association have declared a national emergency in child and adolescent mental health, as reported by Harvard Health Publishing.
Urgent calls on national hotlines are on the rise every week, according to the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health.
Every month, 500 young individuals seek help for mental health issues, which is three times the number from three years ago, as disclosed by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
Individuals in need of assistance often give up before finding the help they seek. Alternatively, they settle for someone who may not be the right fit.
The broken system results in most resources and organizations being accessible only when situations have escalated to an urgent state. This places a strain on resources and increases costs for both families seeking treatment and support organizations.
We have personally witnessed and experienced it. Communities are burdened and lacking knowledge about mental health. The demand is surpassing the available support.
Trusted Sources is the organization working on early-stage solutions. We provide continuous support and employ effective resources to proactively tackle problems before they escalate to crisis levels!
Our goal is consolidate fragmented resources into a one-stop shop that allows students, parents, teachers, and many more to get connected to all available opportunities within their given area.
We Get It
We continue to relentlessly pursue accurate and relevant information in order to stay on the frontline of current issues.
We want parents and their teen children, and underserved families to truly feel seen, heard, and understood!
Given our experiences working with youth and other non-profits, holding positions within our respective organizations, and facing challenges within our own families, our team recognizes the significant issue of mental health with utmost seriousness.
Simultaneously, we comprehended the necessity to gain more specific insights from individuals who confront challenges head-on. Therefore, in the sole month of January 2023, we...
Conducted interviews and surveys with over 100 students, focusing on mental health.
Collaborated with more than 40 pre-existing organizations in our local community.
Attended informative sessions by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Fulton County Behavioral Health, GA Department of Behavioral Health, John's Creek Department of Public Safety, and Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network.
Trusted Sources will continue to facilitate surveys, interviews, and group discussions with teenagers, serving as their advocate in identifying solutions. Alongside them, we will establish or utilize programs that tackle the underlying causes of anguish, despondency, addiction, and so forth. It is our conviction that the time has come to address the root causes, rather than merely dealing with the aftermath.
