The mission behind KnowResolve
Suicide is a public health crisis, and is currently the SECOND leading cause of death for youth ages 10 to 24. For every completed youth suicide, there are an estimated 100-200 attempts. Our mission is the break down the stigma associated with mental health disorders, and the barriers that are preventing those who are struggling from getting help.
Funds raised through this event support our suicide prevention programs for local schools, our grief recovery program for survivors of suicide loss, and The SHED - our community center where teens can connect and build skills and strength to become their best self. To date, KnowResolve has reached more than 130,000 teens and young adults through our suicide prevention programs for schools.
