YOU GOT THIS (YGT) is a compassionate, inclusive mental health outreach program for the New Orleans creative community (including musicians, dancers, performers, students, and more) designed to help calm suicidal thoughts and ease suffering. We advocate for committing to life. YGT programming is designed to keep our creative community connected and informed, helping to build mindful, healthy habits around mental health and self-care.
YGT is directed by a New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Foundation (NOMAF) community health task force in collaboration with local, national, and international mental health and performing arts medicine partners. Our community-based programming is anchored by our medical clinic offerings, including a range of mental health providers (which NOMC patients have access to regardless of insurance status) and partnering substance abuse agencies.
Our intention is to increase access to trusted resources that are confidential, supportive, and clinically effective and create healthy cultures by fostering hope and social connection for our valued creative artists.
