Richards is best known for her roles in Camp Rock, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, Disney/Family Channel sitcoms Naturally, Sadie and Overruled. The new song and video "You Have The Power" is only a part of the work Richards is doing to raise awareness and help those suffering from bullying. She has created and co founded JasmineTheAntiBully.com to share her experiences and help direct kids and teens to the right organizations to get the help they need. www.jasminerichardstheantibully.com
By opening up about her own experiences with bullying, Richards hopes to inspire others to stand up against bullying and to raise awareness of the support available in most communities. 1 in 5 youth will experience a mental health issue, yet only 1 in 6 of those youth will actually receive services. Talking more openly about mental health issues will allow more youth to know about the services available.
