Revitalist Non-Profit, “Community Change Foundation”, Receives $1M Grant to Address Adolescent Mental Health and School Violence
VANCOUVER, BC, October 3, 2022 – REVITALIST LIFESTYLE AND WELLNESS LTD. (“Revitalist” or the “Company”) (CSE: CALM) (OTCQB: RVLWF) (FSE: 4DO), Revitalist has partnered with national non-profits Community Change Foundation, Stand4Kind, and Navigate360, receiving a $1M USD grant through the United States Department of Justice.
The federal grant, “Preventing School Violence: Bureau of Justice Assistance’s STOP School Violence Program,” will be used in conjunction with Revitalist’s proprietary “REAP the Zone” athletic program along with nationally recognized programs from Stand4Kind and Navigate360 directly addressing the mental health of adolescents. This federal program furthers the Department of Justice’s mission by supporting and assisting county, local, territorial, and tribal jurisdictions in improving efforts to reduce violent crime in and around schools.
School violence has continued to escalate, with the last two decades having the highest incidents of reports:
“The National Center for Education Statistics on Tuesday released a 31-page report that found there were at least 93 (shooting) incidents with causalities at public and private schools across the United States in 2020-2021,” the highest in two decades.
In addition, adolescent suicide continues to rise, requiring a collaborative approach to address a growing trend:
“Suicide is the second leading cause of death for children, adolescents, and young adults aged 15 to 24 years old.”
Revitalist CEO, Kathryn Walker, states, “I created Revitalist and Community Change Foundation to work in conjunction with for-profit and non-profit partners to bring positive change to our current environment. The federal grant received from the Department of Justice will help us to expand our adolescent division while focusing on the core mission of Revitalist continually bringing innovative service lines to mental health and wellness.”
