Impact MORE is a program that was born out of IYA in 2012. Its purpose was simple: bring our young adult peer-run model to young people in other communities and offer the training needed to start their own peer-run group. Click here to learn more!
Thank you for visiting Impact Young Adults online! We invite you to look around our site to find out more about the fun and empowering social events we put on for our peers - young adults with mental health concerns. 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.
