Make Mental Health Better – Project Helping: Justin Kruger’s Mental Health Mission

05-20-24 Project Helping: Justin Kruger’s Mental Health Mission

In this episode of Make Mental Health Matter Show, Kelli chats with Justin Kruger about his awesome nonprofit that he started called Project Helping due to his own mental wellness journey. He found volunteerism to be a meaningful and effective mental health tool. He started Project Helping to make this tool more accessible to others who are living with mental health challenges.

Justin is the Founder and CEO of Project Helping, a Denver-based mental wellness organization. He grew up in a ridiculously small town in Iowa. He studied finance and economics, which he now doesn’t use at all. He instead played golf professionally before starting a career in the golf industry. Over 15 years he did all the jobs one could find in this industry, most notably staying with PING golf for almost 10 years. His personal struggle with mental wellness led him to leave the golf business behind to start Project Helping with the goal of sharing the mental health benefits of volunteerism with others living with mental wellness challenges.
