Organizing funds is difficult for me because I don't know where to start. I've raised $2,000 to donate to medical bills of people in need, but those donations are just from friends and family. I would like to expand into creating a nonprofit that would be sustainable and help more people.
Actions I’ve taken so far
I have a private Facebook group for people to share their stories with 700 members. I have a public Instagram and Facebook account to spread awareness. I have paired with a like minded Instagram account to work on educating youth on mental illnesses.
My future goals
Run Mental Health Ohio as a fully functioning nonprofit that provides resources, money and education to those in need involving mental health.
My motivations to work with a mentor
I'm reading a TED Talk book about leadership and it said one of the steps was to find a mentor.... so I'm trying to find a mentor lol!
About my venture
Mental Health Ohio
I started a venture to raise awareness for mental illnesses because I have bipolar disorder. I also am a math teacher. I want to raise money for people that need help paying medical bills and get classes for teachers and students about mental health.
