Erika’s Lighthouse celebrating it’s 15th Anniversary with annual gala on Saturday, May 18, 2019

Erika’s Lighthouse, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to educating and raising awareness about adolescent depression, encouraging good mental health, and breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health issues, will be celebrating its 15th Anniversary with its annual gala on Saturday, May 18.

Erika’s Lighthouse was founded in 2004 by Ginny and Tom Neuckranz after Erika, their teenage daughter, lost her life to suicide. Erika’s Lighthouse develops and provides free teen depression awareness programs and resources to middle school and high school communities around the country. Its programs address the challenges surrounding teen depression using the most impactful, innovative and accessible methods available today.

From a modest start 15 years ago, Erika’s Lighthouse has gone from providing free educational programs on depression and suicide awareness in our local community to now touching the lives of students, parents and school professionals in 300 schools spread across 36 states.
