This is, I believe, a valuable service, because there are a great many people out there, particularly young people, who don't know where to go for help. There are others who choose not to get help due to the stigma associated with mental illness, and feel like they are the only ones who suffer, but when someone has the courage to stand up in front of an audience and say that there are others out there, it can help to give sufferers the strength to seek necessary treatment.
It's a pretty powerful thing. There are talented writers who maintain a blog of the group's activities, and document stories of lives transformed. I've spent days reading every article.
Eventually, I decided to join their Street Team, in an effort to continue their good works. I hope to encourage them to come to Alaska, and to help the people here. As a state, we've got huge suicide problem (particularly in the villages), and many of us are afflicted with Seasonal Affective Disorder.
