Erika's Lighthouse: A Beacon of Hope for Adolescent Depression was founded in 2004 by Ginny and Tom Neuckranz after their daughter Erika lost her life to the illness of depression. Tom and Ginny founded Erika's Lighthouse to be a beacon of hope for the many other young people who struggle with depression, empowering them with the knowledge and skills to understand and cope with this illness.
Together with our incredible staff and our boards, we educate communities about teen depession, eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness and empower teens to maintain good mental health.
There are lots of ways you can get involved in Erika's Lighthouse, too!
