“We need to change the culture around topics such as mental health, suicide, and substance abuse and make it ok to talk about the challenges that we are facing. Our kids are counting on us!”

We are focused on:

  •  The promotion of mental wellness
  • The prevention of and response to drug abuse and addictive behaviors
  • The prevention of suicide and response to self-harming behaviors
