I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to honor the memory of my brother Erik. There is a stigma associated with struggling with mental health that all too often stops people from reaching out for help for any number of reasons. My brother loved nature and I wish he could have found the peace he sought.
Would you consider making a donation, leaving a message, or sharing this page to help others who fight this internal battle every day against mental health disorders?
Peace and love.
