#WeWereHere Project & Path2Purpose Partner Up to Make a Greater Impact
What is Path2Purpose?
Why was the campaign started?
“We are seeing increases in depression, anxiety, and even suicide across the country as a result of the emotional and psychological impact of COVID,” explains Dr. Benjamin Van Voorhees, department head of pediatrics at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s College of Medicine and a principal investigator of the P2P research. “We hope that the P2P Campaign can reach youth online and through social media in areas where there is a lack of mental health resources—for example, rural communities and some neighborhoods in the inner-city.”
