Review for Erika's Lighthouse: A Beacon of Hope for Adolescent Depression, Winnetka, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Erika's Lighthouse is a very unique and powerful organization because it provides the community with a remarkable message that is positive, hopeful, and encouraging. It is an organization that promotes good mental health in a serious yet positive way. I have seen teens that are members of Erika’s Lighthouse club become so educated around such a stigmatized topic of adolescent depression that they become amazing leaders and ambassadors on this topic. I have also seen just how many hundreds and thousands of other students, staff, and educators the organization has truly touched. The organization has grown immensely and I believe it goes to show that the need is there and that teen are ready and eager to talk about and bust down the stigma surrounding depression and mental health.

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

I would only wish that more students, teachers, educators, and parents were fortunate enough to see the programs and receive the education and tools that Erika’s Lighthouse offers.
