John Stanley Joins The Quell Foundation Board of Directors

March 01, 2018

The Quell Foundation is pleased to announce that John Stanley, CEO and co-founder of Philadelphia’s premier advertising agency, MOD Worldwide, is now a member of The Quell Foundation Board of Directors.

“John’s involvement and drive to further The Quell Foundation’s mission have been valuable to our growth and momentum,” said The Quell Foundation CEO, Kevin Lynch. “Seeing our shared passion make a real difference has been very meaningful to me.”

“My devotion to the foundation’s mission coupled with access to a staff of designers and advertising professionals gave me the right tools to make an impact,” said Stanley. “I’m looking forward to putting more ideas into action this year and continuing to shatter the social stigmas attached to mental health illness. It’s been an honor working with Kevin and seeing the difference we’ve made together so far.”

The partnership between Stanley, MOD Worldwide and The Quell Foundation dates back to the organization’s creation in 2015. The apex project of the partnership so far has been the creation of the documentary “Lift the Mask — Portraits of Mental Illness” that is currently being screened at universities and museums across the country.

About The Quell Foundation
The Quell Foundation aims to eliminate the social stigma of mental illness by providing scholarships to students entering the mental health care field and students who have been diagnosed with a mental health illness; educating communities to reduce suicides, drug overdoses, and incarceration of people with treatable mental illnesses; and training first responders to recognize signs of mental distress. The organization also launched the Lift the Mask project, a published compilation of personal mental health stories to encourage a judgment-free dialogue about mental health.
