Advancing family mental health for economic and social mobility

Mental illness, when unaddressed, can keep opportunity out of reach.

Mental health and wellbeing can unlock opportunity.

Historically, public sector approaches to reducing poverty have not meaningfully incorporated mental health. We need a different way forward.

At Elevate we believe mental health is key. Based in the Yale School of Medicine, Elevate is dedicated to developing, testing and scaling innovative solutions to support caregivers experiencing economic hardship as they seek health and well-being, pursue social and economic mobility, and foster environmental resiliency for themselves, their families, and their communities.
