BENEFITING: Life Is Priceless Foundation
EVENT: 3rd Annual LIPF TD Five Boro
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2014
Please join UM and IPG as we ride in the TD Five Boro Bike Tour in support of the Life is Priceless Foundation, a non-profit dedicated towards the research & treatment of depression and suicide prevention.
Every year, one in four adults will suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder.
Yet, only 61 percent of Americans think it appropriate to tell family members about a mental illness diagnosis. Just 43 percent approve of telling friends, and just 13 percent of telling co-workers.
The facts tell one story: mental illness remains stigmatized in our society. Yet in so many cases, helping somone towards the road to proper treatment can start with one simple act: listening.
I am riding for those who suffer from depression in silence. We may not always know who you are, but in us you will always have a safe place to turn.
Thanks so much for your support.
