FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – With all the chaos happening in the world, it's time to do something about it. That’s the goal of a local organization that wants to change the paths of teens and young adults.

Courageous Healing, LLC is a for-profit organization that offers low-cost couseling, consulting and community outreach services.

Next Saturday Courageous Healing is hosting their first event called, "Not So Common Sense: How Did Our Generation Get Here?" It’s a panel discussion that will address social media etiquette, self-motivation, priorities, finances, and breaking negative family cycles.

Courageous Healing Co-Founder Janell Lane, says young people need to address their own issues, instead of waiting for the older generation to find the solution.

“So much is going on in social media and just in our culture. It just pushes a lot of young people into a negative direction. I'm seeing a lot of young people just feeling lost or broken, and I think it's time that we, as young people, step up and not wait for older adults to be the ones to put something together to fix it. We need to take a stand. It's our lives and we need to make a change,” said Lane.

The event will be held next Saturday, April 19, at the Black Box Theater in the Arts United Center at 300 E. Main Street. It begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the door.
