Community Education and Speaking

A major goal for Project LETS is to democratize medical knowledge. We love sharing history, information, resources, and ideas; and have a wide variety of offerings for our community. 

All workshops and speaking engagements are offered on a sliding-scale basis. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, and we will work together with your community to decide on a budget that works for everyone.

When trying to solve this problem of lack of support for college students with mental illness, many people look to outsiders with specific credentials; but Project LETS believes that a solution lies with the very people who experience the problem.
