Behind the S.M.I.L.E Mission
Behind the S.M.I.L.E will bring awareness to the stigma around mental illness, suicide, what are signs, how to address them, who to talk to. I want to assist families and children of people that have a form of mental illness, those where their family member has made an attempt at death by suicide, or those effected by someone that have unfortunately been able to carry out the act. There will be monthly support groups, classes help each quarter, certified gatekeeper suicide training, fundraising and awareness events. I would like to cater the program for veterans (their families), and women regardless of age (their families).
