Our Vision

Mental health matters.


Dream On Youth (DOY) is on a mission to become the #1 hub for young people seeking a safe space in this world. We are dedicated to encouraging healing through multimedia storytelling and opportunities to develop emotional wealth.

While our main focus is ending the mental health stigma, we are fighting for so much more. We advocate for inclusive events, intersectional feminism, criminal justice reform, the protection of people of color, LGBTQ+ rights, body positivity, and disturbing society’s cruel norms. Changing the narrative and breaking generational curses comes naturally.

Our future goals include becoming a registered non-profit, coordinating a wellness tour, providing scholarships to at-risk youth, and building schools that will implement practices to help decrease the suicide rate in young adults.

In the meantime, we will continue to help others debunk common misconceptions about mental illnesses, seeking therapy, taking prescribed medication, etc.

Please note, we are not professional therapists. We are lending our voices, and more, because we love what we do.

We love people. We hope you love us too.
