The Quell Foundation’s Strength in Motion campaign helps to inspire conversation about mental health

The Quell Foundation is a nationally recognized not-for-profit organization committed to reducing the number of suicides, overdoses, and the incarceration of people with mental health challenges. We promote open, judgment-free dialogue to normalize the conversation around mental health. This year, we’re excited to join El Tour de Tucson, rallying a team of dedicated athletes to help break the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Statistically, 1 in 5 American adults, and 1 in 6 youth, are living with a mental health condition in this country. We all know someone—perhaps even ourselves—who is living daily with a mental health challenge. The Quell Foundation stands out as the sole organization (to date) dedicated entirely to promoting mental health. If our mission resonates with you, we urge you to join our team.

Our participation in El Tour de Tucson is part of a newly-established campaign called Strength in Motion. The Quell Foundation recognizes the integrative nature of health and wellness. We know that establishing positive mental health is just as significant as establishing physical, social, and environmental wellness. Strength in Motion is not just about crossing the finish lines together; it’s about inspiring conversations, reducing the stigma surrounding mental health challenges, and proving that every step we take will echo a message of resilience, solidarity, and advocacy.

Our Strength in Motion campaign aims to raise essential funds to support several key initiatives:
● Spreading our mission and promoting mental health awareness nationwide
● Providing scholarships to students across the United States
● Expanding our student-led Lift the Mask Clubs on college campuses
● Offering wellness training to first responders
● Screening our documentary series for first responders, students, and mental health professionals

Participants can choose to cycle or ride with Team Quell, whether at home or in person, ensuring everyone can participate and support our cause, no matter their location. Our goal is to expand our network of supporters and share our message of resilience and solidarity across the country.

Additionally, we are thrilled to announce our presence at the expo, where we will engage with participants, share our mission, and further our goal of normalizing mental health conversations. Our expo presence will include interactive activities and opportunities to connect with our team and other supporters.

Through our extensive programming and initiatives, we have established a significant presence across the United States. Whether you’re in Tucson or any corner of the United States, your involvement can help us continue our mission of reducing stigma and normalizing the conversation around mental health. Join Team Quell’s Strength in Motion campaign and be a vital part of this impactful journey!
