About Helen Mylod Yee

Helen Mylod Yee, YMA’s 2018 intern, grew up in the Bay Area and completed her undergraduate career at UC Davis. Helen’s advocacy journey began in college, when she sought an outlet for the mental health challenges she was experiencing. She took a position on her campus chapter of Active Minds, a national mental health advocacy organization, and immediately found a sense of relief in community-building and engagement around wellness. Helen’s favorite part of mental health advocacy work is that it allows her to share her story, and she aspires to help others find the same sense of freedom she has gained through this experience. Helen joined the YMA team in hopes of continuing her advocacy work and helping put an end to the harmful stigma that surrounds mental illness.
