Suicide is one of the leading causes of death among teens in the U.S. In this program, Elliot Kallen, who founded A Brighter Day in honor of his late son, Jake, will discuss the organization’s efforts in fighting depression and teen suicide; Dr. Patrick O’Reilly, a clinical psychologist specializing in anxiety disorders, and Dr. Rona Hu, the medical director of the Acute Psychiatric Inpatient Unit at Stanford Hospital, will join him. A Brighter Day reaches out to teens suffering from depression and other related issues while allowing them to maintain their dignity. The charity connects teens to the resources they need, showcasing local bands in a way that helps teens learn about depression and its risk factors.
