"Four boys I knew - boys who I had conversations with, boys who I rode bikes with - here in northern Michigan took their lives in 2020/2021.
We can and must do better.
We all have a role to play in protecting our kids’ mental health.
I’ve made a promise to myself to do better - to fight for them - because I can’t take any more of these funerals.💔
The US Surgeon General recently published a new advisory about this crisis: https://bit.ly/32eS6Ns
If you are a mental health professional, parent, community leader, concerned citizen, elected official or middle/high school student who would like to join me in this fight, please do.
The kids need you.
I need you.
We need you."
