THE STORY:

ERIKAS LIGHTHOUSE A BEACON OF HOPE FOR ADOLESCENT DEPRESSION wrote -

Erika’s Lighthouse is proud to announce that we are an official Bank of America Chicago Marathon charity!

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

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!"
