The Jordan Binion Project believes that mental health education for young adults is extremely important. Mental health education is not routinely provided in our public education system, despite the fact that one in four families will be impacted by mental illness and one in seventeen adults will develop a serious mental illness at some point in his or her life.
The Jordan Binion Project has made it’s mission to educate high school students on the subject of mental illness. We provide mental health educational presentations free of charge to any high school or youth group in the Pierce County, South King County Region.
Thank you for sharing your presentation with my classes! I know it reached many of the students with the information you presented. I had many students tell me later how much they learned because you presented in a way they related to. That in itself is a HUGE compliment!!

This program makes a lasting impression on our Family Health Students. It helps them realize that Mental Health really is an important part of the Wellness Wheel and that if they are not taking care of this area, it can affect all other aspects of life. This presentation gives them tools to help better themselves, help a family member or even a friend.

This presentation changed my life. I have attempted suicide twice. I have bi-polar disorder and I have struggled with the idea that I will ever be successful in life. After hearing this presentation, I may still struggle, but I have hope and I will remember this presentation forever. Thank you for doing what you do
