A Celebration of Life is a movement focused on inspiring hope, while also remembering lives that have been lost to suicide. The evening creates special moments and appreciation for life. Funds raised from this event will support Minding Your Mind’s mental health education programs.

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.
In the eight years since it began in Nashville, this annual event has expanded to New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, engaging more than 3,000 young professionals in the service of suicide prevention and mental health awareness.

Minding Your Mind’s (MYM) primary objective is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens and young adults, their parents, teachers and school administrators. Our goal is to reduce the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health issues. Treatment is available, yet only 3 out of 10 individuals needing help actually seek help. Minding Your Mind Programs move away from crisis-based response to prevention through education.
