Pursuit of Balance is a newly established 501(c)3 Non-Profit institution designed to support the mental wellbeing of both children and the school community that surrounds the child by teaching necessary life skills and tools that support psychological and emotional health.
Our mission is to support disadvantaged and underprivileged communities through education so that everyone has the opportunity to live confidently with cohesiveness, authenticity, and resilience.
Statistics show both depression and suicide rates have increased exponentially for not only adults but for children as young as seven. At this time there is no solid plan in place to address this national crisis.

Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among 15-19 year-olds. (WHO, 2021)
The consequences of failing to address these mental health conditions can extend to adulthood, impairing both physical and mental health and limiting opportunities to lead fulfilling lives as adults.
Help us be a part of the solution.
Through personal development programs like Pursuit of Balance, we can effectively address the urgency to improve the social and emotional well-being of both children and the adults who nurture and surround them.
