After a traumatic experience, the world can feel like a lonely place.


Strawberry’s Scarlett Goh says that’s why she’s spearheading Caring Cards, a county program that sends handwritten notes to hospitalized patients in Marin who have been struggling with their mental health, suicidal ideation, substance abuse or other behavioral-health issues.


The program is an initiative of the Marin County Suicide Prevention Collaborative’s youth action team, which includes 17-year-old Scarlett as a member. The team is one of six under the collaborative that works to raise awareness of and de-stigmatize mental health.
