Khristina Ovcharenko, a third-grade teacher, in her classroom in Stanytsia Luhanska, in early February. She left the area on February 17th, hours after a nearby kindergarten building was shelled. Ovcharenko, who has been a teacher for eleven years, said that children who are old enough to remember the start of the separatist rebellion “stand out—they’re more anxious, less calm.”

In the News

Founder Yuyao Josefynick Huang discusses at the Intersectionality Mental Health Conference at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Thursday, March 3, 2022.

“I’m from a really traditional high school, so a lot of times, we see people that are really stressed and anxious,” Huang said. “In our culture, we often tie our performance to our own character.”

“I strongly believe we should take care of our mentality, where I define as the strength of courage and resilience as life is hard.”

Our Story

As a native of China, Yuyao Huang saw first-hand how stigma surrounding mental health was devastating his high school community. He always believes one must support the community with actions and increase the conversation around mental health by connecting and sharing societal resources. Inherently curious, he began asking himself why low-cost peer-based mental health services was virtually absent in China. In 2017, he worked with his high school friends, seeking to end the devastating stigma surrounding today’s most prevalent public health crisis. And with that spirit of wonder, the WYMA journey began.
