Welcome to OPEN UP Mississippi

By using our voices, we seek to remove the stigma and stereotypes that prevent people from seeking mental health services. 


OPEN UP Mississippi is a statewide youth lead advisory council. Our mission is to engage youth and young adults as they break down barriers to gain mental wellness and utilize their strengths and voice against the stigma of mental health.


We envision a statewide movement where youth and young adults are empowered to use their voice to ensure quality mental health care services that achieve positive and lasting mental wellness for all Mississippians.
