Raise Awareness and Support In Your 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.
