Celebrate With Purpose

Mark your birthday, an anniversary, or any momentous event by choosing the most impactful gifts: hope and support for youth struggling with mental health issues.

Dedicate your special day to YMHC and request donations instead of gifts to foster a future where every young person has the mental health support they need.

This year, transform your celebration into an opportunity to make a lasting difference and give a gift that continues to inspire hope!
