The “1 in 5” Project is a community project dedicated to educating teenagers the importance of mental health wellness. The 1 in 5 comes from the statistic that 1 in 5 teenagers suffers from a mental health illness within a given year.
Together with artist Abbsterism, the “1 in 5” Project is a visual depiction of the realities most teenagers are experiencing. Five posters discussing depression, anxiety, stress, poor self esteem, and social media burnout will be distributed to all middle and high school schools in Lancaster County. This project is sponsored by Penn Medicine and the Lancaster Behavioral Health Hospital.
