The History of
A Celebration of Life

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 raised in Spring Lake, and 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 now New Jersey, engaging more than 4,000 young professionals in the service of suicide prevention and mental health awareness.

About Minding Your Mind

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.
