PLEASE HEAR ME OUT — Our youth face challenges everyday that older generations never had to face. 1.9 million children aged 3 to 17 have a diagnosis of depression (according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). That breaks my dad heart. What’s worse is, that’s just those who have been diagnosed. Just imagine how many kids that battle depression everyday and have never talked to anyone about it?!?
Many parents have no idea how much their kids are struggling because kids hide their pain so well. Smiles are deceiving. The positive mental health of students is crucial and needed more than ever before. Kids considering giving up on this life is happening at alarming numbers.
I am going to begin to be more strategic in making my social media platform a place for parents, teachers and schools to learn how to help our youth. We have also begun putting resources on our website, DestroyIllusionsTour.com
Our school assembly is on a mission to continue to speak truth so that millions of youth who may have never otherwise thought of seeking help, may be encouraged to do so because they sat in an assembly during school hours.
I believe we are making national headlines because of the generous support of those who have become a part of our nonprofit family by donating monthly. Your donations have allowed us to reach even more students and America is turning to our nonprofit for help.
If you like to be part of the family of impacting our youth before they graduate, text ‘BEFORE18’ to 44321. or donate here.
