You have the opportunity to empower school professionals around the country by sponsoring Erika’s Lighthouse Resource Portal. By focusing on a specific state or educational specialty (school social workers, health educators, or counselors), you can equip school communities with the tools they need to normalize conversations, reduce stigma and promote an inclusive school culture around mental health to help solve the youth mental health crisis.

Erika’s Lighthouse is focused on equipping and empowering school professionals to reduce stigma, normalize conversations, promote good mental health, and encourage help-seeking. Our turn-key, scalable programs are ready to go – with schools capable of implementing a robust suite of prevention and early identification programs in schools. Through our Four Pillars of programs: Classroom Education, Teen Empowerment, Family Engagement, and School Policy & Staff Development – we can promote inclusive school cultures around mental health that help solve the youth mental health crisis. With Erika’s Lighthouse program framework and resources, school professionals are empowered to take the lead and revolutionize mental health in their schools.

Sponsoring the Erika’s Lighthouse Resource Portal can help to:
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health issues. Depression is a common mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. However, there is still a stigma associated with mental health issues, which can prevent people from seeking help. By sponsoring the Resource Portal, you can help to reduce the stigma of mental health issues and encourage people to seek help if they need it.
  • To support evidence-based programs. The programs offered by Erika’s Lighthouse are based on the latest research and are designed to be effective in reducing depression and improving mental health outcomes for adolescents. By sponsoring the Resource Portal, you can help to ensure that more schools and families have access to these evidence-based programs.
  • To make a difference in the lives of young people. Adolescent depression is a serious problem that can have a devastating impact on young people’s lives. By sponsoring the Resource Portal, you can help to make a difference in the lives of young people by providing them with the information and resources they need to take care of their mental health.
  • To make an impact on youth mental health in communities across the country and promote your dedication to youth mental health. By targeting specific states or an educational specialty of your choice, when users in that state or educational specialty log in to Resource Portal they will see your company reflected as a sponsor.

By sponsoring a specific state(s) or an educational specialty type that you wish to target, you can help Erika’s Lighthouse make an even greater impact.

A sponsored Custom Resource Portal will feature:
  • Your logo 
  • A brief introduction to your support
  • A URL to a selected landing page of your choice. 
  • The opportunity to provide a 15-20 minute video or overview of our partnership and the impact you hope to make in your community. 

The partnership can also include custom slideshows with your company logo to be shown at specific conferences, as well as one targeted email campaign to educators in the state or specialty type that you have sponsored. Sponsoring the Erika’s Lighthouse Resource Portal helps your company and helps Erika’s Lighthouse Rise to the Challenge to support youth mental help.
