Mental Health Awareness Month
In the month of May, we celebrate Mental Health Awareness month. All month long we encourage teenagers to address their mental health, indulge in activities that promote healthy lifestyles and begin routines that will allow them to maintain good mental health.
World Mental Health Day
Every October 10th, the World Health Organizations declares this day to be World Mental Health Day. Since the start of Oakland Made, we declared this day to be one of our core fundraising days as we continue the work impacting teenagers in Oakland.
The videos below are from our October 10th, 2022 Online Fundraiser Event. Watch each video and learn how Oakland Made has encourage these teenagers to address their mental health.
During OUSD spring break, we plan an opportunity to take 12 teenagers on a college tour.
Our first year college tour was conducted in Los Angeles, California.
