Glow Again Depression Fundraiser
After a couple meetings of brainstorming about 24 students in the two year Health Tech Preparatory program at Junior Lake High School in Stark County Ohio) came up with the idea to do a glow in the dark depression awareness walk around our high school stadium and track called "Glow Again." We decided to call it glow again because by the end of the event, we wanted those struggling with depression to be "glowing" and those who haven't struggled to stand with the others to "glow."  Read more.

Suicide Prevention 
People who are considering suicide often exhibit one or more warning signs, either through what they say or do. The more warning signs, the greater the risk.  ADAA partners with  American Foundation for Suicide Prevention  (AFSP) to offer helpful guides and resources to identify warning signs and to take action. In addition, ADAA also recently collaborated with  SAVE on a new infographic to help someone who might be suicidal.  Click here to view/download a full-sized version   of this infographic.

Kayleigh's Story
I have battled more at the age of 25 than most humans do in a lifetime. Take a moment to think of the most dreadfully painful experience you have had - I can empathize with you. In my life, I have overcome two near death experiences. One at the age of 11 which left me in a coma, the other at 21 where I was fighting against a collapsed lung and losing a lot of blood. My suffering has not only been painful physically but mentally. 
Each month ADAA will feature a thank you note, or a personal story of triumph. We invite you to share your own story with us or share how ADAA has helped you or a loved one.  Share your story
