Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in youth ages 10-24 and 1 in 5 children have or will have a serious mental illness including living with a mental health condition, mood disorder, behavior disorder or anxiety (https://www.nami.org). The stigma of mental health is real and in order to create healthier children, families, and friends we need to shine a light on resources, tools, and the stories of those around us who battle this successfully each day.


Yet We Rise will use funds to pursue resources, materials, and guest speakers that can share their knowledge in our
community. We are inviting sponsors to help us in this endeavor in a variety of ways. If you have questions or wish to be an event sponsor please email traie@rushmore.com or kristinedan@hotmail.com
