What we do
Strong365 Lab brings together cross-functional teams across the country to address the complex mental health needs of young people, focusing on communities that have been historically underserved. Through project-based collaborations with youth-serving institutions, our goal is to raise the bar for quality and equitable access to mental health care for Gen Z and those that follow.
Today, our projects span across three areas of focus.
Public health strategy
We guide youth-serving organizations in their efforts to better reach and engage diverse communities.
Intervention research & co-design
We partner with health systems to create, test, and evaluate interventions designed for youth.
Education & advocacy
Strong365 Community improves mental health literacy through the lens of those who have experienced mental health challenges.
"Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced."

What we believe
Everything we do is grounded in the core belief that mental health care is a fundamental human right. Learn about the four ideas that guide each of our projects by clicking the boxes below.
Lasting solutions are upstream
No wrong door
‘Nothing about us without us’
Shining light into shadows
We dream of redefining strength as the integration of all aspects of life – failures and successes, good and bad, hard and easy – allowing for vulnerability, even in the darkest moments.
Strong365 Lab Co-founders Chantel Garrett, MPH and Mili Mehta bring their combined 30-years of experience working with Fortune 100 and start-up companies. Their paths crossed while on similar journeys, transitioning from private sector work in marketing, corporate strategy, and product development to public health.
Chantel and Mili also share a personal connection to Strong365’s mission as supporters of family members living with mental health challenges. They have experienced first-hand the need for and benefit of mental health education and support, both for themselves and their loved ones.
Their collective experiences have led them here, envisioning a world where mental health challenges are understood as a part of life, and asking for help is no longer the exception but the rule.

Making an impact on youth mental health is a team effort.
It requires new and traditional health systems to innovate alongside youth, families, clinicians, researchers, policymakers, technologists, social entrepreneurs, and media.
