Vibrant is committed to everyone achieving emotional wellbeing. Our donors are key partners in our vision to provide everyone with the tools and resources they need to be emotionally healthy and thrive.

When you give to Vibrant you are much more than a donor. You join a movement ensuring:

  • Youth with mental health challenges are empowered to succeed in school and find a rewarding future through our Adolescent Skills Centers.
  • Parents and caregivers are supported to be the best advocate for their child with mental health needs through our Family Resource Centers.
  • Survivors of wildfires, hurricanes or other disasters can receive emotional support through the Disaster Distress Helpline or connect with a local mental health volunteer to receive coping tools and access to local resources through our National Crisis Emotional Care Team.
  • Individuals experiencing emotional distress or suicidal thoughts find hope through the round-the-clock crisis hotlines we operate including the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and NYC Well.

You can help us transform the lives of those striving for emotional well-being. With your support, Vibrant will continue inspiring people to find the courage to seek easily, accessible help and gain the supports and skills they need on their path to healing.
