Our Mission

Improving the Mental Health of Northeaster Pennsylvania (NEPA)

 The Lake Foundation serves to strengthen the mental health literacy of NEPA by providing public education, community advocacy, and promoting overall psychological wellbeing. In doing so, our mission is to help build a resilient community in which each person (children and adults) has an equitable opportunity to live a mentally healthy life.

The specific objectives and purpose of this organization shall be:

  1. to promote evidence-based coping skills through public education (e.g., billboards, local TV commercials, town halls)

  2. to sponsor, host and/or participate in events and activities that promote mental health awareness

  3. to lobby for local school districts to implement evidence-based social-emotional learning programs into their pre-k through 5 curricula

  4. to provide scholarships to local college and university students enrolled in mental health majors (e.g., psychology, counseling, social work)
