THE STORY:

ERIKAS LIGHTHOUSE A BEACON OF HOPE FOR ADOLESCENT DEPRESSION wrote -

Erika’s Lighthouse is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and raising awareness about adolescent depression, encouraging good mental health and breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

Somewhere between 15%-20% of children will suffer from a depressive episode before they reach adulthood, and 90-98% of youth who take their life have a diagnosable mental disorder, the most common being depression. Although depression is quite common and can be serious, nearly 80% of young people go undiagnosed and untreated due to cultural stigma.

The goal of Erika's Lighthouse is to help communities develop a culture that allows people to talk openly about mental health so we can overcome stigma and encourage early identification and treatment of depression - protecting young lives.

We meet our goals through our free educational programming and materials targeted at six constituencies: teens, young adults, parents, schools, health professionals and community organizations.

 

Support Our Team Making Strides to End Stigma!

Race day is July 19th, 2015 and Erika’s Lighthouse is proud to announce that we are an official charity of the 2015 Rock 'n' Roll Chicago Half Marathon!

An incredible way to support Team Erika's Lighthouse is to help us meet our fundraising goal of $10,000 by donating whatever you can, as well as, passing this fundraising page on to friends and family.

Each dollar helps to support Erika's Lighthouse and our free educational programs.

Join us and together let's "GET DEPRESSION OUT OF THE DARK!"
