Our Mission Statement is to eradicate suicide and help those with depression in our area. Now, more than ever with the recent tragedies in our country, there is a serious need to address the illness.

Each year in the United States, more than 30,000 lives are cut short by suicide every 17 minutes. For every life lost, thousands more are affected by a child, parent or co-worker. Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for young people ages 10-24 in the United States, Over half of all suicides occur in adult men, ages 25-65.

Our Vision is to help people with the symptoms of depression.

Provide education and outreach to those in need.

Work with professional partners to educate the community and those with depression.
