Erika’s Lighthouse relies on the support of individuals, business partners, and foundations to help us combat adolescent depression.

From the start, we’ve been a community that came together after tragedy. We’ve built communities of compassionate educators, advocates, students, and partners. We’ve built a community full of hope, knowledge and depression campaigns. We’d love for you to join our community.

What Erika’s Lighthouse gave me was a voice. It gave me a way to fight back against the frustratingly intangible issue that mental health is. It gave me a small sense of community with a peer group during a time that I didn’t have a safe space to retreat to.
