Who has Heart and Soul? We do! This year we applied for the Heart and Soul Award through the CTK Foundation. Although we did not win the official contest, we think our member, Grace, scored a hole in one with her submission and we want to share it with you! Check it out!
What is IYA? Impact Young Adults (IYA) is a group of young adults ages 18-35 that are in recovery from mental illness. They have come together to change their experience from one of surviving to one of thriving! To find out more about us please visit our About Us page
We Are Friends What brings members together is the search for wellness but what keeps them coming back are the connections they make and the fun they have together.
We Have Fun! Group members meet weekly to have fun! Some of the most popular events include visiting theme parks, camping, rock climbing, BBQ’s, hiking, ice skating, street fairs, and more!
We Are Leaders Impact Young Adults is a nonprofit led by its members. Whether these young adults are leading events or meetings they are learning to be leaders in their own lives.

Welcome to IMPACT YOUNG ADULTS!

We invite you to look around our site to find out more about the fun and empowering events we put on for young adults with mental illness. We believe that having a mental health diagnosis doesn't have to stop young people from living a life that inspires them. We have found that by creating an environment that includes friends, fun, and the opportunity for personal growth we can change the face of mental illness for young people.

Thank you for visiting Impact Young Adults online!

We Are More than Our Illness
Mental illness is the common thread that starts the connection among members. But after spending some time together, members start to see themselves and each other as more than their illness.
 

 

 

"Impact Young Adults has shown me that although I have a mental illness there is a way for me to be myself and meet cool people."

–Nick, IYA Member since 2010
