Many people struggle with life issues. Increasing academic pressures, social demands, bullying, peer pressure, and financial hardships are some of the common stressors. All of these challenges, when left unchecked, can escalate to a mental health crisis—even suicide. Nick’s Network of Hope provides resources, education, and support for life challenges with an emphasis on mental health awareness, suicide prevention, and grief and loss. We reach out to communities by public speaking, participating in mental health awareness events, helping to sponsor mental health and suicide prevention exhibits and events, and providing online resources and education.
