My State of Mind is a digital mental health resource tool to help individuals access wellness professionals and programs throughout Chicago. Access to mental health resources is essential for students and other young people. Their state-of-mind impacts academic performance, personal growth, and their overall quality of life.
Chicago’s youth face unique challenges that can significantly affect their mental health. Each person has their own identities, culture, experiences. Finding a mental health program is hard enough – finding the right resources for the individual is that much harder.
That’s why My State of Mind is here to help you find wellness programs throughout Chicago. Our digital guidebook has collected the information on resources to leave you feeling informed, empowered, and validated – resources that fuse what makes you unique with local accessibility.
Let’s get started.
