For years, taking care of mental health has been important to Hickman High School juniors Erin Robinson and Alyssa Adolph.
They have attended therapy since middle school. They have made connections with mental health professionals at Columbia’s Family Access Center of Excellence.
Now, they are sharing their expertise through their startup company, Grey Matter.
Grey Matter acts as a middleman between teenagers and their guardians in order to open up the conversation about mental health.
The company supplies resources and information about local mental health professionals and is focused on reducing the stigma of mental health issues within the African American community.
