About the MJR Foundation
MJRF Mental Health Champions Program
The Miles Jeffrey Roberts Foundation is excited to announce the launch of the MJRF Mental Health Champions Program. This mental health initiative is intended to be transformative in approach for engaging youth athletes through trusted adults, specifically coaches, trainers and other professionals within the Athletic Department. The MJRF Champions program was begun in the fall of 2022 at Skyline High School as a 3-year pilot program currently funded by MJRF to develop and demonstrate evidence-based outcomes in supporting youth mental health. This pilot program will then be extended to other schools with the long-term goal of partnering with other funding agencies and high schools to place MJRF Mental Health Champions within local high schools in Washtenaw County.
