Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among teens in the U.S. and the number one cause in Colorado, where Robbie’s Hope began. But what’s more staggering than the statistics is that there isn’t more being done to help the individuals affected most—teens.
As adults and as a society, we are failing our children. It is our goal to empower the next generation to cope with the stress and pressure of modern society. To redefine what “good” actually looks like. To help teens recognize warning signs and realize they’re not alone. To allow them to feel their voices are being heard, letting them know it’s ok to ask for help, and giving them the tools and resources they need to rally together and talk openly about their struggles. Through compassion, empathy and communication, we are building communities of support where it is not only acceptable, but normal, to talk about depression and anxiety.
At Robbie’s Hope it is our mission to empower a generation of teens to let each other know it’s ok, to not be ok. Help us inspire more young people to have HOPE (Hold on Pain Ends) in an effort to fight this horrible epidemic.
Help us cut teen suicide rates in half by 2028.
