The Lily-Jo Project is devoted to eliminating the stigma surrounding mental health through music, digital resources, and community engagement.
We firmly believe that when exposed to the basic principles of mental health from an early age, kids are empowered to:
- Be proactive about maintaining good mental health into adulthood
- Ultimately reach their full potential and achieve their dreams!
The Problems We Face
1 in 5 people have suicidal thoughts, 1 in 14 people self-harm, and 1 in 15 people attempt suicide. We believe that this is far too many.
Here are a few key underlying problems:
• 75% with a mental health condition start developing it before 18.
• Teachers and parents lack quality mental health resources.
• Support services are overwhelmed, have long wait times, and require a referral.
• Existing mental health curriculum does not resonate with kids and teens.

At each event, our goal is to have an honest conversation about mental health, making sure students understand:
• How to look after their own mental health.

To drive home the message, we utilise music, dance, and activities to make learning about mental health fun and memorable.
