Preventing suicide: Eliminating the stigma behind mental illness

Through your gift, you are contributing to our mission to unlock and nurture human potential in people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.

In recent weeks, the world has been shocked and saddened by the suicides of fashion icon Kate Spade and celebrity chef/author Anthony Bourdain. While the news cycle may slow down in coverage around these tragedies, addressing the topics of suicide and mental illness are ones that need to stay at the forefront of our public consciousness.

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health wants to continue this national conversation and help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness, so people reach out and get the care and treatment they so desperately need.
