Shine A Light: Get Depression Out of the Dark

Erika's Lighthouse is determined to make sure no young person feels alone in their depression. We provide school communities with mental health education programming that engages students, educators, and families so that everyone has the knowledge and resources they need to support students' mental health. All of our programs are free to schools, so cost is never a barrier. 

You play an important part in that mission - by raising awareness and funds to support our programs. Without you, there would be no Erika's Lighthouse.

Shine A Light is an opportunity for you to create something personal and memorable to raise awareness and support education surrounding teen depression and suicide prevention. You can create your own unique event, celebrate a special occasion, or choose from one of our event ideas!

Interested but not ready to register? Complete this interest form and we will be in touch!

Memorials in honor of loved ones lost can be made on our Light A Beacon site.
