Erika’s Lighthouse Teen Clubs

The Erika’s Lighthouse Teen Clubs are high school and middle school mental health and depression awareness clubs that students can start in their school building to increase awareness around teen depression and good mental health. Learn more on how to start a Teen Club.

Erika’s Lighthouse Teen Clubs are modeled after the pilot club started at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois in 2005. The goal of an Erika’s Lighthouse Teen Club is to educate students about depression, help break the stigma associated with depression and develop a culture of good mental health in schools so that teens who suffer from depression can get the help they need.

Erika’s Lighthouse Teen Clubs typically meet weekly or monthly and sponsor depression awareness activities that promote good mental health in their school throughout the year. Contact Ilana Sherman, our Director of Education, to learn more.
