You have the power to help address the serious and increasing mental health challenges affecting teens today. 

Shine a Light is your opportunity to help get depression out of the dark and to recognize, honor, and celebrate the people and events that are important to you.

Through the Shine A Light campaign, you can create something personal and meaningful to raise awareness of and support evidence-informed education on teen depression and suicide prevention.  Your partnership will accelerate the integration of Erika’s Lighthouse programs to maximize interventions and generate real cultural change in our schools. 

The program is designed to let you Shine a Light in the way that works best for you and your commemoration or occasion.  
  • Honor your loved one by shining a light in their name 
  • Make your celebrations even more special and memorable by partnering to end the stigma of teen depression through Shine A Light 
  • Create your own event –  bake sale, bowling night, garage sale, anything! – to connect your friends, family, and community to the vital work of letting teens know they’re not alone in their depression 

Erika’s Lighthouse is determined to make sure no young person feels alone in their depression. We are dedicated to creating a community of empathy and education. We invite you to join our community of caring, compassionate individuals working to make a difference. The Shine a Light process is really easy for you and we are here to support you along the way.
