The mission of BridgeUp is to improve the mental health and well-being of vulnerable adolescents in the Houston area. Our focus is on prevention and early intervention of behavioral and mental health disorders through the BridgeUp Model of (1) school-based social and emotional learning programs, (2) behavioral health supports and (3) collaboration.
Through Magic Grants to school and community partnerships, we aim to create bold, sustainable systemic improvements that enhance social and emotional learning (SEL), academic achievement and well-being in vulnerable adolescents.
BridgeUp is supported by a generous gift from the Brown Trust/Pussycat Foundation of New York.
