We Care

KyleCares is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting open and honest communication about the mental health challenges experienced by teens and young adults in today’s society. Ultimately, we aim to eliminate student self-harm and suicide by creating school environments where students and their caregivers have the confidence and support to seek help without shame or hesitation.

KyleCares helps high schools and colleges in New England support student mental health by:

  • Connecting schools with mental health resources and service providers
  • Facilitating long-term, comprehensive strategies to address student mental health
  • Funding school-based mental health education, awareness, and suicide prevention programs

KyleCares Conference at Gillette Stadium

In partnership with the New England Patriots Foundation, we were thrilled to host our second annual conference on April 4, 2024, at Gillette Stadium!

One of the few conferences of its kind in New England, this innovative conference for student mental health brought together over 550 high school students from 37 different schools to deepen their knowledge, skills and training around mental health, inspire each other to take action at their schools, and bust stigmas by engaging in educational breakout sessions to normalize the conversation about mental health, and encourage help-seeking behaviors!

Our “KyleCares – WeCare” awareness campaign urges everyone to foster positive mental health and cultivate non-judgmental, empathetic, and supportive school environments. This involves engaging students, athletes, families, educators, coaches, the business community and influential organization leaders at all levels to contribute. Protecting youth mental health is a paramount concern, and schools across New England are increasingly joining our campaign every month. Follow us on social media and show your commitment to transforming the culture and conversation about mental health!

Mental Health & Statistics

The teen and young adulthood years are a time of growth and transition, and the prevalence of mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, and self-injury continue to rise. As a result, mental health and suicide awareness issues are at or near the top of every school administrator’s list of priorities. The facts cannot be ignored – our country’s teens and young adults are struggling more than ever before.
