About

Sad Girls Club was founded in February 2017 by Elyse Fox. After releasing a documentary film about her life with depression Elyse immediately experienced a wave of young women from all over the world who were seeking a mentor through their own mental health struggles.

Sad Girls Club D.C.

Sad Girls Club was created to bring together girls who are going through mental illnesses with the goal of;

1. Removing the negative stigma that surrounds mental health conversations

2. Provide mental health services to girls who don't have access to therapy and treatment

3. Create an 'in real life' judgement free community for young women so they know they're not alone

We currently host monthly events throughout the tri-state area and wish to expand our Sad Girl network throughout the U.S.

Sad Girls Club is joining the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's Project 2025 initiative.The goal is to reduce the rate of suicide in the U.S. 20% by 2025. 

How do we plan to help?

We're raising $25,000 to cover the costs of travel, training, curriculum building, food and marketing to host a Sad Girls Club tour. We will join forces with qualified therapists to create a unique curriculum for millennials to launch a Sad Girls tour in 5 major cities around the country. Our summits will include therapy, panel discussions, workshops, expressive art therapy, food and wellness guidance + more.

We plan to kick off our tour winter 2017 when Seasonal Affective Disorder is at its peak and shed a light on a previously closeted topic.

Risks and challenges

We understand that removing the stigma around the conversation won't be an easy task to combat. With creating the 1st mental health awareness tour for millennials with many moving parts. Thankfully we'll be working with trained professionals who will help us create the best curriculum and maintainable budget possible for the tour.

We've created a budget break down for each city we'll visit to ensure we're using our resources adequately.
