Social entrepreneurship with two branches: a performance branch seeking private/earned income and a program development branch seeking grant/social justice funding. The non-profit and for-profit worlds are merging and we are on top of this trend.
General Information
Right now the mental health system is being massively de-funded across our nation. We need a radical new way to look at mental health delivery that relies on less expensive and more effective solutions. The primary bottleneck in the mental healths system is the medicalization and increasing disability levels of so many people. My solution is “crowdsourcing” – using lay people in the community to support each other through the tough times in life.
