It's OK to not be OK

Reed was a sophomore at Etowah High School. He was a loving, smart, talented, well-liked and seemingly a strong and mentally healthy 15 year old when he took his own life on December 19, 2018. What none of us knew was that Reed was hurting...he was not okay. Reed didn't talk about his pain, and didn't show signs of depression, so no one knew he needed help coping with his challenges.  Every person that knew Reed was completely shocked that he ended his life. Signs of depression or anxiety are not always obvious. 

Shortly after Reed's passing, we gave feet to our grief. LoveLikeReed, Inc. was created. This non-profit, 501(c)3 organization will honor Reed's life, by continuing his legacy of loving, helping, and serving others. Our mission is to erase the stigma that depression and anxiety carry and to help our local schools and community provide safe places for our children to talk to a professional when they are hurting or struggling.  They need to know that It's OK To Not Be OK and when they share their feelings they can find hope and help to move past their current situation.  Let's keep talking and communicating so together we can save lives.
