The mission of Ellie’s Bus is to spread awareness of mental health issues & suicide prevention to teenagers across Maryland and across the country.
Ellie’s Bus is interested in partnering with schools, youth organizations, religious institutions and other groups to help teach young adults about positive mental health awareness. If you’re affiliated with a school or other group, Ellie’s Bus and our network of professionals would be interested in visiting and talking to your group about these issues. The tone is always positive with an emphasis on educations and awareness. Please reach out on our contact form and tell us a little bit about your group.
