The You Aren’t Alone Project (YAAP), a nonprofit based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, launched a virtual raffle fundraiser on May 18 benefitting mental health initiatives. The national raffle will run until 11:59 p.m. CST on June 2, 2021. All proceeds will benefit the project’s ongoing events, programs and initiatives.
The raffle kicks off the ceremonious relaunch of YAAP during Mental Health Awareness Month after over a year of uncertainty during the pandemic. The group also hosted their first in-person program since early 2020 with a series titled CBT & Coffee, led by Licensed Professional Counselor Brittany Hebert, highlighting the power of cognitive behavioral therapy to manage thoughts, emotions and behaviors. In addition, the project’s founder and executive director released a special episode of her podcast, Along the Gravel Road Podcast, with special guest Ryan Schwartz, founder of Mental Health Match, a national platform changing the way people find the right therapist.
Funds raised will help to facilitate the project’s future goals and expand outreach far beyond the Baton Rouge area with the ultimate goal of making mental health more accessible to everyone. Some of those initiatives include:
