FEELINGS ARE COMPLICATED.

RELATIONSHIPS ARE TRICKY.

PRESSURES CAN BECOME OVERWHELMING.

  WE WERE TAUGHT TO IGNORE UNCOMFORTABLE THOUGHTS AND EMOTIONS.

OUR COLLECTIVE EMOTIONAL HEALTH HAS SUFFERED AS A CONSEQUENCE. 

LET'S BREAK THIS CYCLE. 

THIS IS WHERE WEZMORE COMES IN.

Wezmore exists to help young people and their families navigate the complexity of our emotional lives with practical skills and tips that are delivered through a variety of highly engaging media.

OUr KIDS ARE HURTING

The Numbers are alarming

 

Approximately 157,000 Youth between the ages of 10 and 24 receive medical care for self-inflicted injuries at emergency departments across the u.s.

suicide is the third leading cause of death for youth between the ages of 10 and 24 and it results in approximately 4600 lives lost each year.

17% of American students report being bullied 2 to 3 times a month or more within a school semester.  This number climbs to 43% in the Teen years, in the form of cyberbullying.

It's estimated that 1 out of 4 elementary school bullies will have a criminal record by the time they are 30.

Fast paced competition has been blamed for symptoms of “burnout” in kids as young as age 10 or 11.

 

We can do something to make a difference
