An outreach program providing mental health self-care activities and resources to foster hope and social connection for the creative community.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

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. We are creatives helping our community travel a mindful, healthy new path.

YGT is directed by a New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic (NOMC) community task force in collaboration with local, national and international mental health and performing arts medicine partners. Our intention is to increase access to trusted self-care resources that are confidential, supportive and clinically effective and create healthy cultures by fostering hope and social connection for our valued creative artists. Get involved – come to a YGT event, join our Facebook group or sign up to receive our weekly e-letter!

OUR APPROACH

COMPASSION

It’s ok to speak up and you are not alone. The YGT community is mindful of the difficulties our performers face and are here as a resource for care and connection.

COMMUNITY

Together we are stronger. We realize it can be difficult to reach out and we strive to create an inclusive community with open conversation and support.

CONNECTION

Social connection and togetherness is a fundamental part of mental health support. YGT programming and events invite you to engage with and contribute to your community.
