For the longest time Painted Brain’s Young Ambassador program ran under provisional conditions and never officially launched.

How do we know Painted Brain Young Ambassador’s program has an impact?
We look to influence introspective impact within our community which in return gives individuals the awareness to reflect their insight and influence the change we need as a whole for societal perception of mental illness to skew toward a more empathic view. We believe the natural flow of communication, trust, and confidence comes from relational and psychosocial development, rather than using assessments or programactic exercises we like to follow the saying by JJ Edwin, “Allow one to be, as to be one, comes with two, and two with many, is much more. “.
