MI Community Forum: “Let’s Talk About It”
The Scooty Fund Panel Presentation

on Mental Health and MI’s Young Adults

Sunday, February 9, 2020, 3:00-4:30 pm
Sponsored by The Scooty Fund
Location: Mercer Island Presbyterian Church


Contact: hello@scootyfund.org

The panel will address mental health as it affects our community’s young adults, drawing upon the experiences and knowledge of three Mercer Island young adults and three mental health specialists. The presentation will be a moderated panel followed by a question and answer session.

The Scooty Fund was founded in March 2018 in honor of Will “Scooty” Taylor, who died by suicide in March 2017. In efforts to help other young adults cope with mental health struggles and painful emotions, Will’s sister Kasey and four mental health advocate friends founded TSF, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

The Scooty Fund developed its mission to promote, support and advance culture surrounding mental health and wellness in ways that enhance the lives and well- being of young people. Driven by this mission, TSF focuses on encouraging conversation, destigmatizing mental health “issues,” building supportive and open communities, educating others, raising funds for crisis resources and, above all, helping young adults prioritize their mental wellness in ways that work.

This panel presentation is co-sponsored by The Scooty Fund, Mercer Island Youth and Family Services, Mercer Island Pediatrics and Mercer Island Clergy Association.
