SafeSpace is a youth-led, mental health-focused organization that empowers young people to engage openly with their local schools and communities. We create and implement initiatives to change the conversation around mental health by educating and encouraging our peers to speak up, support others, and seek help when needed.

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, all of us here at SafeSpace acknowledge these are challenging and unprecedented for many. While our out-reach efforts have adapted to Covid-19 safety protocols in order to keep our communities safe and healthy, we are still working continuously towards our goals. Please visit our resources page for more information.
