We want to spread the message that it is possible to overcome suicidal thoughts and feelings and that there are many resources available to help those who are struggling to cope. The goal of this event is to create a "message of hope" and to provide strength to any one who might be struggling. Help us create a "community of caring" by letting each other know that anyone can experience suicidal thoughts but there is help, and there is hope.



Your ticket to State of Hope ALSO includes access to a LIVE stream concert from the Belly Up stage by rock n' roll band Daring Greatly!

We look forward to "seeing" you at the event!
