OUR MISSION

Senescence is an intersectionally-minded community mental wellness project geared toward supporting teens* through collaborative story-telling and compassionate conversation about teen mental health.

 

*including their parents and caregivers.

OUR WISHES

 

  • To reveal the outrageous prevalence of teen mental illness - particularly depression and anxiety.

 

  • To build a welcoming, safe and supportive online space to share personal mental health experiences.

 

  • To increase awareness and understanding of teen mental health through story and shared experiences, and by providing resources, research findings, and psychoeducation.

 

  • To promote the importance and necessity of imagination, creativity, collaboration, curiosity and experimentation for mental wellness.

 

  • To create a sci-fi story guided by input and shared experiences from teenagers, caregivers, readers, creatives, mental health advocates, and other not-yet-discovered sources.
