Mission: Dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self injury, and suicide. Twloha exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and invest directly into treatment and recovery.
Programs: The events and tours program creates opportunities to connect directly with the demographic we serve as an organization through conferences, college events, music tours and festivals, as well as supporter organized benefits, memorials, and other engagements. Heavy and light is a music tour twloha created to encourage people through music and words, to stay alive and get help they need.
the awareness and education program yields multiple possibilities to share twloha's mission with the general public, specifically through our website, social media platforms, video and design projects, as well as through the arts community. Various award and interview opportunities also contribute to this program in reducing the stigma surrounding depression, addiction, self injury, and suicide.
the treatment and recovery program provides individual and family aid and encouragement as people deal with the effects of depression, addiction, self injury, and suicide. This includes financial assistance for individuals seeking help through counseling and treatment programs. We also offer financial support to organizations working in the fields that align with the twloha mission.
"other program service accomplishments" consists of the intern program, the move conferences program, the uchapters program, and the storytellers program. The intern program is designed to facilitate a community of people willing and equipped to live out the mission of twloha. Three teams of five to seven interns are selected each year to help keep the office running and assist the staff members in all the departments of the organization. Interns are selected to join us in learning how to live lives that are open and honest, and to live in the community while working passionately to present hope and help to those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. The move conferences program consists of one - two day, in depth, engaging workshops that equip and educate communities about the topics of depression, addiction, self-injury, suicide, and the role a trusted community plays in bringing hope to those who feel broken. In a discussion format led by professional counselors, we explore what is behind the struggles, what drives them, what recovery looks like, and how we can make a difference. These conferences take place in a variety of cities across the country. The uchapters program includes a network of student organizations on college and university campuses that exist to embody the mission and vision of twloha. Through organized meetings and events, each chapter serves as a voice of hope, inspiration, and support for students and their surrounding communities. The storytellers is a program where a student organizer works with a faculty advisor on behalf of their high school to create awareness about mental health issues, bring the twloha message to their school, and foster community on their campus, while also raising funds for twloha. The program is completely free and of no cost to the student or school involved. Our hope and goal is that by reaching high school students in their everyday environment, and by engaging the student body as a whole, we can bring hope and help to high school campuses and their local communities.
