Inspired by his former lacrosse teammate and best friend at St. Joe’s, Joe Walsh, Bill created the Come To Me Campaign to illuminate the depth and breadth of the support network that college students have if they are anxious or depressed. In its first year, Come To Me distributed over 7,000 wristbands on the Vanderbilt campus, and inspired Come To Me programs at eight other universities, involving nearly 25,000 students, faculty, and visiting parents.

The first A Celebration of Life: Philadelphia last year was incredibly successful in raising both awareness and funds for Minding Your Mind. Every day I speak with students and see the impact our work has on their lives. It is humbling and gratifying to see one of those students, Bill Savage, be inspired to create a campaign and enact change of his own in the area of suicide prevention. Your presence will help Minding Your Mind programs reach more students and inspire the next campaign for change.

A Celebration of Life began in 2011 to honor the memory of Kyle Craig, a 21-year-old student at Vanderbilt University who took his life in May of 2010. Kyle was a dynamic friend to many; a bright, handsome, and gifted individual across music and athletics, but whose strength of character enabled his growing struggles to be hidden from view. The grief over his shocking loss has been transformed into action. Beginning in Nashville, and expanding to New York City and Philadelphia, this annual event has reached thousands of individuals and raised over $275,000 for Minding Your Mind.
