To no surprise, successfest was a success!! It was inspiring to meet many wonderful young people! I cant’t express the strength of all the people I had the pleasure of meeting. I felt surrounded by so much love today, I hope we all get to take that back into our own lives!! So grateful to have had the opportunity to spread our message alongside many wonderful initiatives.
We fly because of initiatives like successfest

Hi everyone! We just wanted to share an upcoming opportunity to spread the love and gain a little hope. Friday March 16th, join 13 Reasons to Fly and other mental health awareness organizations in bringing hope & resources to hundreds. We will be doing a workshop to spread our message that afternoon.
This event is a forum for young adults, young adult allies, parents, DMH staff, and community providers to network, share available resources and creative opportunities, and ultimately recognize and celebrate HOPE.

However you celebrate today, (or even if you don’t) remember YOU are loved. While it’s so important to spread love to others, it needs to start from within! Remember that today is a day to not only spend with your loved ones but to spend with YOU & to do things that promote Self-Love and anything that’ll make you feel happy! Because as always, you are worth it & are so deserving of your own love 🎀❤️
Today marks the first time we brought our message into a non hospital setting! It is also the first place of worship we’ve gone to! Huge thank you to my church family for all their support and especially to the youth for opening up & allowing this message in! It was great to finally bring this back to my own town!
If interested in bringing 13 Reasons to Fly to your place of worship, please email email@example.com !
We are so grateful to have opened our first out of state chapter this weekend! We traveled to Utica, New York to The House of Good Shepherd. So thankful for this amazing crew! They had welcoming, hardworking staff and inspiring youth! This was our first real interaction with a school and we are excited to see what’s to come. This was an uplifting experience and we learned how our message needs to be heard on so many different levels. Can’t wait to come back:)
