We Received a Premera Social Impact Grant of $30,000!
We are excited to be one of the six nonprofit organizations across Washington chosen by Premera Blue Cross through its Premera Social Impact program to receive a grant to support behavioral health solutions, particularly in underserved communities.
According to studies by the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year, and approximately 1 in 5 youths aged 13 to 18 have experienced a severe mental disorder at some point during their life. “Behavioral health is an issue we all need to address together by reducing the stigma around the conditions and providing access to care,” said Paul Hollie, who leads Premera Social Impact. “These programs strive to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families in their communities.”

His mother, Jordan Blair is a past tSBoard Member!
Our community is experiencing the loss of a beautiful and brave tSB youth, Natalie, who inspired many of her peers and tSB community members. Natalie was a former Prophet and current Peer Leader. On December 18, 2018 she was fatally shot by her mother. She was quiet and shy, but we at tSB saw her grow as a leader, confident and compassionate, speaking up for others and herself. Natalie was our youngest peer leader, and showed so much love and strength throughout her time with us.
