G.A.P.- CREATE (Community for Recovery And Trauma Education) is a Global Adolescent Project initiative. 

G.A.P.-Create emerged from the work during the hours while our youth were in school and the needs for community wide training and education in mental wellbeing became obvious.  We have partnered with organizations on the ground in Haiti, and in the United States to develop training with mental health professionals, paraprofessionals and students of all ages.  We use the community model developed by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration called the Recovery Oriented System of Care. We integrate existing community resources for education, training and counseling for issues of mental wellbeing, addiction and trauma resilience for people of all ages. 

We strongly believe in equal opportunity for mental wellbeing.

Our activities include;

  1. Training in Trauma Resilience, Addiction Recovery and Mental Wellbeing
  2. Peer Education and Training in at-risk schools
  3. Paraprofessional Training -Mental Health Agents
  4. Annual Conference in Spirituality and Mental Health
  5. Service travel
  6. Self help group development
