WE ARE A BILINGUAL AND BICULTURAL MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE
Our vision at ZEROGROUND is to provide resources and guidance to young people and families to attain
“An equal world”
ZEROGROUND is a strong believer in the power and value of education because is the academic experience that helps us understand and seek equality by becoming strong, independent individuals. Our passion lies in working with communities where the children and families are at risk for issues like slavery/trafficking, addiction, mental illness, and the perpetuation of stigmas and victimization. An essential element of our program is supporting communities in taking the labels of race, color, gender, and age back to Zeroground, enhancing their potential to the fullest. We’ve designed different programs to help minorities learn how to access and use resources, services, and educational tools. The dream is to be able to provide bilingual / bicultural programs to communities in need.
We will be a critical voice in how the level of education and the surrounding culture play an influential role in mental illness. Zeroground initiatives dig into the issue of inequity and its connection to poverty, unemployment, immigration, geography, and behavioral health. We believe there is a basic level of knowledge and skill that everyone needs concerning their own mental health. By teaching our communities about mental health, we hope they will be equipped to meet the challenges they, their friends, and their peers will encounter in life.
“When you are no longer identified with any labels, you enhance your
understanding of others, adopt new values, and learn to respect people for who they really are; it’s
like opening the doors to reach a happy life”.
