Mental Wellness Box

The Dear Jack Foundation Mental Wellness Box was created to remove the stigma of asking for mental health support when going through cancer treatment as a young adult.

We are excited to announce that we will be revamping our Mental Wellness Box program in 2024 to become an online and interactive webpage that will provide resources, create opportunities to come together as a community, and support you as you work to achieve your mental health goals.
