Welcome to HEART...
Help Educate At Risk Teens, Inc.
Being a teenager isn’t just about going to the mall and hanging out with friends. The youth of my generation are being forced to grow up quicker than almost any other generation. About 50% of those suffering from mental health disorders are undiagnosed and untreated.
My name is Veronica Tullo and I founded HEART because this issue has affected so many of my friends and people I love. Since then I have been working closely with The Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide (SPTS) in Monmouth County to help raise awareness of this problem that is on the rise, especially in my home area of Morris County, NJ. Morris County has the hightest teen suicide rate in all of New Jersey. My goal is to help bring educational programs to high schools across the country. Please help me spread education and awareness. Thank you!
The mission of the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide is to reduce the number of youth suicides and attempted suicides by encouraging public awareness through the development and promotion of educational training programs.
Montville Township Stigma Free Task Force
The Montville Township Stigma-Free Communities Initiative is part of a county-wide program which aims to eradicate the stigma associated wth mental illness and substance use disorders. We are dedicated to raising awareness of these illnesses by creating an environment where affected individuals are supported and encouraged in their efforts to achieve wellness and recovery.
Mountain Lakes High School has provided not only a space for HEART to provide programs for the students of Morris County, but has also reached out to their student, and other schools, encouraging awareness and education of mental health and suicide.
