Why Behag?

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for ages 10-24. Many children and adolescents who attempt suicide have an underlying mental health disorder, such as anxiety or depression. Even with the many programs and initiatives fighting for better mental health care and suicide prevention across the country, the problem has only gotten worse. Many of us feel like we can and should be doing more.

We don't have all the answers, but together as a like-minded community, we can tackle this Big Hairy Audacious Goal. We can't just stand by while young people and families continue to suffer.
