Who We Are

YouBeYou is a teen mental health campaign that was created in response to the rising suicide rates among teens and seeks to spread a message of self-acceptance.

The campaign was developed by Bernstein-Rein Advertising in collaboration with the Greater Kansas City Mental Health Coalition and Jewish Family Services of Greater Kansas City. These partners determined that more mental health resources need to be provided to teens in middle and high schools. Implementation of the campaign in schools is led by students, in consultation with the You Be You partners and the school administration. Learn more »
