Presenting with the NAN Project

Yesterday, we had the opportunity to present at the 18th Annual Restraint & Seclusion Prevention Forum. I was so lucky to speak on an issue so near to my heart, alongside other amazing peer mentors from the NAN Project. I am so grateful to the Department of Mental Health- especially Janice Label!

It was a busy day & from there, we headed to the 15th Annual Suicide Prevention Day where the NAN Project premiered their viniets- 13 Reasons Why to talk about suicide, which 13 Reasons to Fly is so grateful to be a part of! Thank you to everyone that came out yesterday, this is the start to not just prevention, but one day elimination.

I am a 19 year old survivor, advocate, and student. 3 years ago, 13 Reasons to Fly was founded while I was living in a hospital battling mental illnesses, the original idea was to combat the message of the show Thirteen Reasons Why. Instead, 13RTF was created in the image of hope, that there are so many reasons to live- to fly. With your help, we can raise mental health awareness, spread that “it’s okay not to be okay” and make the world a better place.
