Local Latinx Outreach Pilot Seeks Advisors

MotiSpark is a Los Angeles-based, mission-driven start-up dedicated to improving the well-being of diverse communities through interactive, highly personalized mobile videos. Our unique platform harnesses evidence-based behavioral science techniques to improve self-efficacy, knowledge, and self-care skills in a fun and engaging way. 

We recently won a small grant, co-sponsored by Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, to conduct a pilot promoting mental health and resilience among underserved Latinx young adults, ages 18-24. For the pilot, we are gratefully reaching out to local mental health professionals to assemble a select group of community advisors to provide strategic feedback a few times over the next two months (no more than 3-5 hours total). 

We are honored to have this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young people who often face multiple stressors, and who also often fall through the cracks of our healthcare system. If you work closely with local Latinx young adults in the area and would like to consider supporting our effort, please contact Jason McNichol, PhD, at jason@motispark.com. Thank you!
