October Mental Health Awareness Month: Fundraising Campaign
YEEHAAA along with 50 non-profit organizations are joining Horses for Mental Health (Horses for Mental Health) a peer-to-peer awareness fundraising campaign composed of mental health professionals, celebrities, influencers, and businesses. The campaign is called, “Seen Through Horses” to increase public awareness where horses play a role in personal growth and well-being.
YEEHAAA is spreading awareness of the power of horses to raise funds for October Mental Health Awareness from the 3rd through the 10th, of 2022. During this campaign, we are asking for your help to choose YEEHAAA by donating and supporting our program to ensure we are able to offer our services in a school setting where students get credit hours incorporating horses for personal growth for a safer school environment.
Join us by scanning the QR code on the screen or for more information you can go to Horses for Mental Health (Horses for Mental Health), or our website/Facebook (HOME | yeehaaa, (20+) YEEHAAA.org | Facebook). YEEHAAA strives to reduce bullying and suicide (bullycide) and is imperative to support our children to thrive and feel safe in schools and in everyday life. Together we can reduce bullycide in America.

During this segment YEEHAAA focuses on:
The crisis Utah has with our youth taking their own lives as young as 10 years old.
Interacting with a horse creates that awe-ha moment that increases personal growth. When you have horses as a co-facilitator, you start to develop a relationship through the activities.
This creates a positive environment between student-to-student and teacher-to-student for team-building skills, empathy, boundaries, and personal growth. Research shows positive relationships can prevent bullying and suicide.
