THE STORY:

I have chosen to run the Chicago Marathon in honor of all those I have known: family, friends and students who have struggled with depression and thought there was no where to go to be understood. I chose to run for Erika's Lighthouse because I believe that our mental health is vital to being happy, healthy and simply one's true self; it is the very core of what they support. Depression and mental health is not something embarrassing; it is not a reason to hide or a reason to not live .  Deression is not picky- it can affect girls, boys, women, and men, caucasians, blacks, hispanics, straight, lesbian, bi-sexual, etc. 

I'm running this October in memory of those I've lost and for anyone who has lost someone to depression or any mental health diagnosis because they were too afraid to ask for help. I run for those in my life who remind me each day how lucky I am and who are fighting the same fight I am to give others a voice and the strength to  conquer their struggles. I'm running to "Get Depression out of the Darkness."  

Please take a look at the amazing things that Erika's Lighthouse does for adolescents with drepressionand those who are the ones who help the others out of the dark.  Thank you for any support you can give. If it is not a donation, please help by supporting the cause of ending the negative stigmatism of drepression so that we save lives each day. 

ERIKAS LIGHTHOUSE A BEACON OF HOPE FOR ADOLESCENT DEPRESSION

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 our 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.

Our goal is to help communities develop a culture that allows open discussion about mental health so we can overcome stigma and encourage early identification and treatment of teen depression - protecting young lives.

We meet our goals by providing free and effective educational programming and materials targeted towards middle school and high school communities that share the message that depression is common, yet treatable. You are not alone. 

Depression education is our best hope to prevent suicide and help schools to create a culture of good mental health. Please join us and together let's "GET DEPRESSION OUT OF THE DARK!"
