I am proud to have been associated with Erika's Lighthouse since its inception in 2004. This unique grassroots organization has contributed GREATLY to the field of mental health education, particulary raising awareness of childhood and adolesent depression. I cannot recommend highly enough their Parent Handbook whch can be downloaded from their website

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

...try to replicate the work of Erika's Lighthouse in other cities and school districts thoughout the country.
