Teens Connect

What We Do:

Raise awareness and help overcome the stigma of mental health challenges through conversations with middle and high schoolers. Promote help-seeking behaviors. Reduce isolation and increase teens’ coping skills and connections to professional resources. Train and empower teens to help peers who are in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge.

Teens Connect holds Wellness Cafes at 10 middle and high schools in Napa, American Canyon, and St. Helena. These peer-led discussions open conversations about students’ mental health challenges, ask what students need to feel more supported, teach tools for self-care, and provide connection to resources and support. We partner with Mentis to provide school-based, free of charge individual therapy and group mental health treatment for students.

Teens Connect supports student-led clubs on high school campuses that empower students to educate their communities about mental health and create a culture of peer support within their schools.

Other Ways to Help:

Donations needed for our annual fundraiser:

  • Silent auction items related to our wellness mission: spa treatments, yoga packages, outdoor adventures or activities, therapeutic treatments, art or art supplies, vacation packages – anything related to health and wellness.

Business Partners:

Kristofer Chun Real Estate will match the first $1500 in donations given to Teens Connect through the Give!Guide.


Being a part of Teens Connect has allowed me to build relationships with other passionate teens, raise awareness around mental health, and break the stigma among my peers.
