Welcome to the Working Document: A collaborative brainstorm. The beta version of In the Gap.
WORTHY PROBLEM: There’s a mental health crisis among today’s teens/20s
AWESOME SOLUTION: Less Tech, More Spirit, Yes! But what about Tech WITH Spirit.
In 2017, The Space @ABC Legacy launches again as the Millennial Incubator for teens/20s post-graduation.
John Boynton jumped on board last week with a Wheelhouse community partnership to create the prototype, the replicable model to shift perceptions and seek innovative solutions for teen/20s mental health. Helping them move from surviving to thriving.
On January 30 we are having the first in a series of Community Conversations on the Mental Health Crisis among teens/20s between college age students and adults in the community.
John Boynton / Wheelhouse are partners, and Rose Pavlov of Ivy Child International, Jessica Morey of iBme, and Doug Worthern at Middlesex School are the Mindfulness partners located right here in Concord.
John and I have begun to reach out to the different community leaders, faith and community service, and others. We will hold an information and collaboration meeting the second week in January to set up the January 30 meeting.
We are also working with Jeff Clements and Susan Muller of American Promise to engage the Millennials in the 28th Amendment. When one transfers Anger and Anxy into Empowered Activism, perspective shifts.
College Age Collaborators:
Tuesday afternoon, December 20 at 2 pm, I had the first meeting with college age collaborators. Liza Connolly of Kids Cooking Green and her daughter Lyla, who was on a Gap Year in SE Asia last year joined Josh Glass of Maynard and Jack Delehey of Concord.
This winter I have a Creativity Team: Power Down for Presence, Passion and Purpose Pioneers…
to continue to develop SusanReynolds.org and new storytelling media.
- Ana, creative writer and empowered activist

- Josh, a videographer among many other creative talents

This becomes one of the innovative solutions for the AB United Way Healthy Teen Initiative.
The Space at ABC Legacy is The Millennial incubator in the Bradford Mill, a Community that Cares as we work together, teens/20s and those who love them. to solve the mental health crisis for so many college age teens/20s including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and more:
BU Mental Health Matters There is little mention of mindfulness and almost no spirituality. No one is offering real solutions to the technology problem, just acknowledging that there’s a problem.
Please forward to anyone who may be interested. It’s “going to take a village,” local and global villages. Atoms and Bits, thus Atoms to Bits Children’s Legacy.
