The Nexus Story
NEXUS (Neuroscience Experts and Cross-Sector Unconventional Stakeholders) has identified a set of unmet mental health needs for women, youth, and individuals coming in contact with the justice system. To address these unmet needs, NEXUS is partnering with a broad, diverse range of mental health stakeholders to energize the traditional mental health conversation.
We’re working with traditional and nontraditional mental health stakeholders, namely, those who are not typically associated with mental health, but who have mental health experience and insights. This includes law enforcement officers, prison administrators, parents, community center volunteers, women’s health professionals, and student-facing professionals, to name a few. Our stakeholders are all in it together to fulfill the NEXUS vision to bring innovative solutions to the front lines of mental health.
