Depression education is suicide prevention. Erika’s Lighthouse was created to be A Beacon of Hope for Adolescent Depression in schools across the country. By leveraging an upstream approach to suicide prevention, we can normalize conversations, promote good mental health, encourage help-seeking and support early intervention.
Our programs were designed to promote inclusive school cultures around mental health. By educating young people, we are educating communities and changing how we talk about mental health.
