Thinking about a program?  Contact us to talk about which one is right for your group. We want everyone to be able to recognize and respond to someone in danger of losing their life to suicide.

is May 11.  It’s a day when we ask new supporters to donate online and help us win even more money, thanks to the Peninsula Community Foundation.  We are grateful to those who give to us in support of suicide prevention.  THANK YOU!  You make everything we do possible!  You are deeply appreciated, and we will make every dollar count as we promote good mental health and break down stigma.

On May 21, Smartmouth Brewery kicks off the Things We Don’t Say collaboration with a special event at both locations in Hampton Roads.  Join them as they craft conversations around mental health and kick stigma in the can! Proceeds from purchases of this beer will be donated to The Sarah Michelle Peterson Foundation.
