Email News Alerts

On Thursday, November 4th we lost our daughter Cassidy to suicide. As a family we feel it is important to share our thoughts and to reach out to help others who may be struggling with depression and anxiety as our daughter did. We want the community to know that it is important to learn more about depression as well as the warning signs and risk factors that may lead to suicide. Depression is the leading cause of suicide and is the most treatable of all mood disorders.
