Foundation 43 - Making mental health care accessible.

Below is information originally published on Foundation 43 website. Go to Chubbies company page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

Founded by the team at Chubbies, Foundation 43 is on a mission to expand access to effective mental health care and suicide prevention within historically marginalized communities, with a particular focus on funding organizations built by and for the communities they serve.

Our mission

Foundation 43 was named for our 43 facial muscles, one of many ways we convey (or conceal) our emotions. We know that mental health is more than just helping folks feel happy or relaxed - we envision a world in which everyone is free to use the 43 muscles of the face to express the full range of emotions that make us our beautiful and dynamic selves.

Today's mental health data reveals a stark reality for millions: nearly 1 in 5 adults and nearly half of all young people in the US live with a mental illness, but due to a variety of factors only half of people experiencing mental illness ever receive treatment.

We say enough is enough: Mental health care is a basic human right and everyone seeking it must have access to effective, aligned care.

Foundation 43 envisions a world in which people are free to heal in ways that resonate with each of us. We pledge to speak openly about mental health to chip away at stigma and shine a bright light on the ways in which systemic inequities like racism, homophobia, transphobia, and sexism impact wellbeing.

We're proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with our partner organizations to help shift the statistics and connect more people with lifesaving resources. Each grantee is tackling different aspects of mental health, and we're humbled to fund their community-led programs.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Only 4% of companies that say they value diversity consider disabilities. Even fewer include learning and thinking differences.

While neurodiversity is a concept that is gaining more awareness, many employers have still not fully grasped the importance (and benefits) of understanding neurodiversity and how to effectively incorporate and retain neurodivergent individuals in their organizations.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year. Here's what they're doing, in their own words:

As vaccination numbers climb and some—though not all—of our collective paranoia begins to dissipate, businesses are starting to reopen. Employers face a key decision: how will they respond?
