    Find Your Anchor - grassroots suicide prevention

    Find Your Anchor (FYA) is a grassroots movement aimed at suicide prevention, awareness, and education. With creativity and a personal touch, FYA aims to support those who may be struggling and de-stigmatize conversations surrounding suicide and mental health. This funding would help us launch more FYA boxes to those struggling throughout Los Angeles - many at the lowest point in their lives. It is our goal to receive more messages like this: I just wanted to let you know you saved a life today.""

    Find Your Anchor

    At the heart of Find Your Anchor’s mission is a small blue box. Once referred to as a “mental health first aid kit,” each box is packed with good vibes and materials designed to inspire, soothe, and offer support. This includes a “52+ Reasons to Live” deck of cards, an infographic on depression, a list of resources, posters, stickers, a bracelet, and a letter. The boxes are intended to be organic in the sense that each person can add their own anchors and inspiration to the box before passing it along. We want more FYA boxes throughout LA.
