Our Network

Creating partnerships and connections across different types of expertise is at the core of everything S2i does. Behavioral health issues cut across all sectors of society, meaning that engaging expertise from different sectors is imperative for jointly identifying comprehensive solutions. The breadth of cross-sector subject matter expertise of the S2i partner network allows S2i to pursue innovative ideas and maximize impact.
