Today, mental wellbeing and healthcare are each individual’s right and should be affordable and accessible with no taboos. This is even underserved in the foster care ecosystem.

As of 2021, there were approximately 660K Children and Aging Youth in America. As of 2021, ~660K children are in the foster care system.

•        36% of children placed in non-relative foster homes

•        25% of children placed with relatives

•        Need a Source of resilience and inspiration

•        Top Musicians, Artists, Computer era pioneers, and Authors, among other trailblazers are raised here

Cost to Society Wellbeing is in the billions.  Social Return of Investment (SROI)* for every $1 dollar spent on child 1, the future value created is approximate -$3.64 Negative Outcome for public social wellbeing.

Statistics show that children in foster care are more likely to experience mental health issues than their peers. According to the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being, approximately 50% of youth in foster care have a diagnosed mental health condition, compared to just over 20% of children in the general population. Additionally, youth in foster care are more likely to experience depression, anxiety, and behavioral issues.

Who does your solution serve? In what ways will the solution impact their lives?

Our goal is to ensure that every mother and child have access to mental and emotional wellbeing, starting with those in the foster care system. Unfortunately, welfare agencies and services often lack the resources and personnel to provide adequate support, with a shortage of funding estimated at 25% in Massachusetts alone.

Myndzon is working to address this issue by offering tools for self-expression through art and music. We prioritize data residency and privacy to empower creators and improve their financial stability. Our mission is to give a voice to those in the foster care system and support their mental and emotional wellbeing.
