what we do
Empowering Our Youth
To empower our youth, parents, and neighbors to speak about the anxiety, depression, addiction and suicide that is plaguing our children today. To Shine a light in the shadows of the need to make our neighborhoods safe, supportive, and strong again. It will take a Village to save our children. No matter your color, religion, or tax bracket it is all of our responsibility…the kids are counting on us!
It Takes A Village
ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, DRUGS, AND OUR YOUTH
My son Isaiah committed suicide in 2016. I believe he suffered from anxiety and depression. He was in trouble and doing drugs in the last couple of years of his life but this wasn’t him. I did everything I knew to do to help him…to save him…but I couldn’t.
Now is the time for our neighborhoods and communities to come together to empower, strengthen, and save our kids and young adults.
IT IS Your Business, IT IS Your Responsibility.
I believe we have to take our communities back.
We don’t know our neighbors, community leaders, and first responders like we should. I believe our church leaders, no matter the religion, need to start talking about the epidemic of suicide. I believe we need to involve multiple people and businesses in the neighborhoods to teach trade skills, and be mentors. Most importantly, I believe we need to stop thinking it won’t happen to you…because it can. I wish this daily anguish on no one!
If you see something, say something.
Help Keep Our Children Safe From Depression, Drugs, And Risk Of Suicide.
When I say I buried my child, people get very uncomfortable, they seem to look for a way out. It is okay to ask questions. We will tell you if we don’t want to talk about it. It’s not normal, no parent should ever have to bury their child. No matter the age! Suicide is a double hit. I am using my voice to speak about my child, and try to save yours.
