Global Sustainable Partnerships

Founded on the rich legacy of enhancing community health and empowerment,
GSP recognized the urgent need to address the inequities exacerbated by the
pandemic. These include heightened stress, anxiety, and isolation among youth.

In response, GSP harnessed its resources towards creating meaningful change, becoming
certified Mental Health First Aid trainers and establishing the first approved
Teen Mental Health First Aid Implementation Site in Maryland. When traditional
methods failed to reach those most in need, GSP strategically leveraged its
expertise and community trust to launch VIBE CHECKUP.
