Mother & Daughter
Taking Mental Health by Storm!...They chose to FIGHT Together!
~ Coach Niki & Kena'i
We Fight Foundation Inc. is a community based nonprofit founded in 2016 that helps youth, young adults and their caregivers navigate through the challenges that come with living with a mental disorder and/or illnesses...
Mental health has become a major issue among youth impacting their positive development. Researchers proclaim that 10-20% of youth are affected by mental illnesses. External pressures such as social media, peers, toxic schools and/or living environments is causing these numbers to grow.
After our founder, Coach Niki almost lost her daughter, Kena'i to suicide not once, not twice but six times, she wanted to ensure that no other parent/caregivers experience the pain, lonliness, confusement, isolation and emotional roller coaster she endured. She also wanted to help other parents/caregivers help their children work through their mental and life challenges without turning to risky behaviors, self-harm, self-medicating or sadly suicide.
Coach Niki decided to start a non-profit to fight with her daughter and other parents/caregivers alongside their child to help them develop healthy coping skills and an additional resources to support their overall mental wellness.
We help parents/caregivers identify strategies, tools, protective factors, preventive measures which are critical to build positive relationships and positive environments so they will have more positive experiences on their mental wellness journey.
We Fight Foundation Inc. is not a substitute for mental health treatment; however, we are a great addition to any treatment plan.
