As we bring the story of the Goodman family to the stage, it is important to recognize that for many families, the battle with mental illness is a hard reality.
One person dies by suicide every 40 seconds.
That is over 2,000 people per day and nearly 800,000 people in a year.
And it is the second leading cause of death among young people.
Right now is Mental Health Awareness Week and World Mental Health Day. With this show— together— we have the ability to contribute to the charge and do more.
Whether you just saw us perform or were unable to attend, please join us in supporting the JED Foundation. Your donation will help strengthen school programs, develop resources, educate students, families and communities around mental health— and ultimately save lives.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
