Together we can   BREAK the stigma  around mental health.

Look Around Boone seeks  youth  who are passionate about making change.

We want to  empower your voice.


We hold an annual creative contest to help break the stigma around mental health issues among youth. 

Because life can be hard: grades, body image, loneliness, priorities, the issues can pile up. 

Mental health challenges are part of what it means to be human, but when

1 in 5 teenagers struggle with mental health, you know it's time to speak up!

Your voice can make the difference.


The Look Around Boone creative contest is your tool to make art and help raise mental health awareness: be creative and join the movement! 

 Because mental health is a big deal.

Winners' art will be displayed as posters, digital displays in the community, social media posts, and more. 

Look Around Boone is a campaign to raise awareness about mental health among youth.

The Look Around Boone creative contest is your tool to speak up.

Make art. Break the stigma.

If you or someone you know needs help, call 1-800-395-2132

You are not alone.
