Are you a teen who’d like to make a difference in mental health for your peers?

Click here to join our Teens Mental Health Collective.  This group will teens who unite as content creators about mental health. We aim to share the voices of youth to reduce stigma and increase healthy communication, and access to care as needed.

VOX ATL’s MH Collective will also be members of the VOX ATL Teen Staff who make a primary commitment to create content specifically about mental health. We’ll work together to grow our skills as creatives and as advocates for youth-friendly mental health education and resources.

The VOX ATL MH Collective is free to join — and you can earn stipends for your leadership and published content.

Plus, you get all the benefits of being a member of the VOX ATL team: state-of-the-art media tools in a teen-driven space, editors and mentors who care a lot about you, and access to all of VOX ATL’s after-school programming — from theater and movie review opportunities to team-building and all the quesadillas and crockpot chili you can eat.

To register for VOX ATL’s MH Collective you you must:

  • Be a teen (14-19) living in the metro-Atlanta area
  • Be interested in quality, youth-friendly mental health services and education
  • Be committed to working in a diverse team and growing as a content creator and community builder
  • Commit to meet with the collective at least one Saturday* per month (schedule TBD by the Collective), participate VOX ATL’s end-of-semester community events (Dec. 14 and May 9), and use VOX’s editorial process to publish nonfiction content about mental health.

Can’t commit in person but still want to share your voice? Click here to submit your story online or email editor@voxatl.org. We’ll support you through our editorial process to get ready to publish your work.

Questions? Feel free to call 404-614-0040 or email Rachel@voxatl.org.
