Help us break the silence of mental illness as we join together and support a community that inspires hope. The event is taking place on Saturday, May 18th in Brightwaters, New York.

All of the proceeds from the event go to the Postpartum Resource Center of New York.

The sound of silence can be deafening.

Those who struggle with mental health know this well because they deal with it every day. Unfortunately, many of their family members and loved ones do not know they need help – until it’s too late.

My sister Lisa suffered from postpartum depression and recovered – and the Postpartum Resource Center of New York (PRCNY) was a vital reason why my sister got better. After that experience, my sister and I made a pact to raise awareness and funds so that the Postpartum Resource Center of New York’s programs and services would be available for everyone in need. Tragically, Lisa succumbed to depression in 2014.

While heartbroken, this made us more determined than ever to continue our efforts. We raised more funds and created a Take Care of You campaign to reach out to high school students. We were committed to continue the vision Lisa set in 2007. Despite this, silence struck our family again in 2018 when we lost my sister Susanne to mental illness.

Losing two sisters to mental illness is something I struggle with each day. “What could I have done better?” is a constant question that I’ll never be able to answer. But rather than focus on what I can’t change, I’m focusing my efforts on preventing this from happening to anyone else. That’s why we need your help.

Please consider one of the sponsorship opportunities and help us break the silence!
