Johnny’s Ambassadors are united in our missions to educate parents and teens about the dangers of today’s high-THC marijuana on the developing adolescent mind. Research shows today’s high-potency marijuana causes mental health issues and subsequent suicide in our youth, and Ambassadors are determined to advocate against it.
Johnny’s Ambassadors are “Those people and organizations who help adolescents suffering from substance abuse, mental illness, and suicide ideation.” Our allied organizations come together to save the lives of our youth, and Johnny’s Ambassadors will actively promote their activities.
What is an Ambassador? “A person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity.” Ambassadors, therefore, represent organizations and people who work in the fields of adolescent substance abuse, mental health, and suicide prevention.
Why use the name Johnny? Personification is “a person, animal, or object regarded as representing or embodying a quality, concept, or thing; the representation of an abstract concept in human form.” The name Johnny, to us, represents ALL adolescents who suffer similar substance abuse, mental illness, and suicidal ideation.
Our Mission: Johnny’s Ambassadors educates parents and teens about the dangers of today’s high-THC marijuana on adolescent brain development and suicide.
Our Vision: To dramatically decrease the incidence of adolescent substance abuse, mental illness, and suicide, to allow our youth to live productive, happy lives.
As Johnny said in his college essay describing his most important value, “To me, altruism means being selfless or giving to other people, even when there may be nothing to gain and something to lose. Altruistic people do things for the collective interest instead of their own.” Johnny’s Ambassadors are joined in altruistic solidarity to save the lives of our youth.
