We are the Yellow Tulip Project —
smashing the stigma around
mental illness — one tulip at a time.
We are tired
of the stigma.
The deafening silence around mental health needs to be broken. We are tired of the stigma that keeps people from reaching out and getting help, and we are tired of losing our friends to suicide. The Yellow Tulip Project is a determined youth-driven movement – and we’re ready to bring about immediate change and to remind folks that there is help and hope out there.
Become A Youth Ambassador
Our Youth Ambassadors are the glue to our movement and ARE the change! Through various outreach activities, they tirelessly engage with their schools and communities to spread YTP’s mission of smashing the stigma surrounding mental health.
