Fighting to achieve the policy, legislation and budget changes needed to end the Campus Mental Health Crisis and transform Mental Health Literacy and Access. 

Stay tuned for the Ignite 2020 - 2024 Policy and Action Agenda announcing our BOLD plan for a safer America. 

The beginning

From purpose to vision

Sean soon posed 'how do we translate our audacious vision into measurable goals and unite the most capable people in the world to achieve them, in the shortest possible time?


The answer? After 9 months of back to back meetings and iteration came our 3 Utopian Goals & ‘Our Approach'. Helping world-class entrepreneurs and Changemakers to tackle the problem from multiple angles. 

From pain to purpose

Lacking basic mental health literacy, unaware of the effects his ADHD meds/digestive issues were having, and temporarily homeless; during 2015 - 2018, Ignite's soon to be Founder, Sean Burke, experienced first hand just how broken our system really is. 

Realizing how lucky he was to fully recover, he's had one mission - to fix it, and make sure no student would ever have to experience the avoidable suffering he did. Ignite was born.

A vision becomes a movement

Ignite quickly grew to attract a phenomenal Founding Team, leading academics, entrepreneurs and students; refusing to accept the status quo, intent to transform the future of mental health.
