Youth Emotional Support, a registered 501(c )3 charity was founded in 2019 by Rose Meeske, who experienced first-hand the challenges a family faces when a loved one suffers from a mental illness. The family encountered a lack of effective and accessible treatment options. In addition, they faced obstacles in funding the treatment. As a result, Rose gathered a motivated group of people who wanted to advocate for adolescents, teens, and young adults who are living with mental illness, along with their families.
The goal of YES is to offer resources, support groups, and assistance to individuals and their families who are facing the trials of a mental illness. Additionally, YES is committed to promoting current and clinically effective training opportunities for professionals.
Mental illness is a real illness. People often suffer silently due to the stigma associated with mental illness. Having discussions and raising awareness about mental health are the first steps in combatting this stigma. When a family member suffers from mental illness, it can turn your world upside down. Often a family is in chaos and scrambling for any help they can find. YES aims to relieve some of those challenges by offering one place in which to locate resources, support, and education for individuals and family members, as well as, training for mental health professionals. Encouraging teenagers and young adults who need help to seek it early, will prevent future tragedies. Communication and understanding are key to combating the stigma associated with mental illness.
