Since 1989, MHA’s Listen to Children Program has mentored thousands of at-risk children experiencing academic and social problems, yet sadly we see others fall through the cracks, feeling excluded and alone.

To help prevent this problem and promote positive mental health for our community’s children, we teamed up with local author and anti-bullying advocate, Loverly Sheridan, to launch the Buddy Ambassador Campaign in Palm Beach County schools. A national success, the Buddy Ambassador campaign fosters kindness and brings children together.

The MHA Buddy Ambassador Campaign promotes mental health and support for community children through active listening, kindness, and inclusiveness.

Because Everybody Needs A Buddy. Please help us achieve this goal by sponsoring a Buddy Bench at a local school of your choice to raise awareness and give children the learning tools they need to be a Buddy.
