What is Please Live?
Please Live, Inc. is a nonprofit based on education and awareness of youth mental health and suicide prevention. Through free educational events, Please Live invests into the future generations by teaching young people how to recognize signs and symptoms of mental health problems in themselves and in their friends.
Ten percent of funds raised from this collection will be donated to Please Live to assist them in providing their life-saving educational programs free of charge to hurting youth in our community.
One of the biggest barriers of hurting people getting the help they need is simply a lack of education. Many people are struggling and aren’t even aware that what they are experiencing is an illness that can be treated. Please Live’s program is created and taught by adults with compelling “been there, done that” stories to offer a firsthand look into experiencing and recovering from a mental illness.
“You really helped me. I was thinking about (suicide) and I just wanted to be gone. You helped me (to reach out and) get help.”
