About the Direct to Youth Innovation Lab
This work is led by our Direct to Youth Innovation Lab. Our products are designed together with young people to create a safe digital place where they can see themselves reflected within a supportive and inclusive community that prioritizes their identity and experiences about mental health, sexual health, and beyond. Current offerings include our TikTok channel and our app, selfsea, available for download (Apple, Android) and as a web-based product.
As a team, we follow young people’s vision. Within Peer Health Exchange, we run as a separate business unit and innovation lab. That means that we run more like a social-good business than a traditional nonprofit in our goals and pacing. We go far together and include everyone. We are bold in our ambitions and fail early, often, and forward.
