Our Mission and Vision

Find what makes you shine!

The mission of The Bright Organization is to include youth voices into the discourse surrounding mental health. We are dedicated to providing accurate resources, breaking down stigma, advocating for sustainable change, and creating a space for young people to share their experiences. 

We aim to promote empowered young people who engage in difficult discussions surrounding mental health and collaborate with politicians and parents.

Our Values


We are devoted to listening to all stories regardless of background.


We strive to endure discomfort because that's where growth occurs.


We aim to create a kind environment not only for others, but for ourselves.


We will continue on this journey because it is important.
