Do you want to improve the world? Ever wonder what it would be like to get in at the ground level to help guide a transformative organization, as they grow rapidly to power world-class entrepreneurs and Changemakers to positively impact the lives of 1000's, 100,000's or 1,000,000s??
At Ignite Mental Health, we're mobilizing, supporting and uniting world-class mental health entrepreneurs/organizations, while concurrently mobilizing students at scale, to achieve Three Utopian Mental Health Goals.

Using this novel approach, we're working to make the impossible inevitable; helping build and scale breakthrough organizations and movements to be as impactful as Facebook and Google, but which address the root causes of some of the biggest problems affecting mental health.
Our team has been fortunate to be able to seek counsel and advice from leading experts at the Harvard Innovation Lab and the Harvard Rock Centre of Entrepreneurship, but as we continue to expand rapidly, advice is needed from a broader sphere of advisors including non-profit legal experts.
Selected Advisory Board Members will have an extraordinary opportunity to join an industry-changing organization, which grew rapidly from the Harvard and MIT communities to become a nationwide effort within just 9 months.
