More Info

Maine has the highest rate of youth diagnosed with anxiety disorders in the country. This makes Maine a powerful place to spark a national change for youth mental health. 

My name is David Bidler and I am the founder of Physiology First. We work with students, parents, and teachers to provide cutting edge anxiety mitigation tools to students in Maine and beyond. 

 (Presenting the latest science on stress and anxiety to students this March.) 

The landscape of how we diagnose, treat, and talk about mental health is changing rapidly. What was once a conversation draped in stigma is turning into a positive and proactive conversation around the science of stress and how we can manage it more effectively. 

(Presenting to an association of Maine medical professionals on the role that breathing dysfunction plays in generalized anxiety.) 

Our team at Physiology First raised $10,000 through a Go Fund Me campaign to reach 20 schools in Maine and Massachusetts. The presentations have given us an opportunity to provide stress and anxiety education as well as anxiety mitigation exercises to hundreds of students. 

Our goal for the 100 Miles for Youth Mental Health Run is to raise $25,000 to scale the program to 50 more schools while building online resources to reach countless more students throughout the nation. 

With your support we can help the next generation of leaders overcome anxiety and achieve their goals. Please support 100 Miles for Youth Mental Health today! 

Sending our deepest thanks to everyone for your help and support and looking forward to the run in a couple of weeks!

David Bidler, 

Founder, Physiology First
