We Believe That

pink-droplet    Every person is born with
innate wellbeing and mental health.

pink-droplet    We already have everything we
need inside (we just don’t
always feel it).

pink-droplet    Resilience can be covered up
but never lost, damaged or broken.

Our Vision

A healthy and thriving world
where all young people
learn to uncover their innate
wellbeing and potential
to become resilient,
contributing members of
society.

Why is iheart so important?

When our youth know that mental health and wellbeing is innate and that they have everything they need inside, this is:

Liberating. Young people are excited to discover that they are whole and well. Nothing is wrong with them.

Hopeful. Young people discover that they have everything they need inside of them. This gives them the confidence to achieve their potential and overcome setbacks.

Empowering. Young people gain the knowledge and skills to navigate their journey through life. No doubt they will make detours, but they can get back on track!

What if resilience is something you are born with,
not something you have to find or build?
