AIM Youth Mental Health


AIM is finding and funding promising youth mental health research that can identify solutions to make a difference in young people’s lives, while building a movement devoted to the mental health of children, teens, and young adults.

The Big Idea

AIM Youth Mental Health is dedicated to the mental health of children, teens and young adults, leading the search to fund promising youth mental health research. This nonprofit’s Big Idea is a campaign to raise $1 million by the end of 2021 to support new therapies, diagnostic tools and early interventions for Monterey County youth. Currently, mental illness affects 25 percent of young people, with 50 percent experiencing a poor mental health episode by age 25.

AIM uniquely addresses the critical need for clinical research to help children, teens, and young adults with mental disorders in order to generate more effective interventions to help reduce and ultimately prevent their suffering from the disorders and their risk of death by suicide.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
