SUICIDE PREVENTION ORGANIZATION

 
 

Pick With Austin is a 501(c)3 certified nonprofit foundation that operates in the memory of Texas teen guitarist, Alan Curley.

The purpose and mission of PICK WITH AUSTIN is to help educate and elevate a community awareness about the dangers of depression as it contributes to potential thoughts of suicide, particularly in young people, but also as associated with our military and their families.

We use Alan's Gift of Music to draw attention and to enhance this awareness. We provide donated guitars to kids and teens in hospitals, in youth groups and ministries, and/or to those who have been identified in some way of being potentially "at risk" of depression.

Pick With Austin funds a one-of-a-kind online peer-to-peer support group; live chat room via your smart phone app or computer, and a message posting forum. This support group is not a crisis line, and it is not facilitated by therapists, crisis volunteers, or professionals.  Anonymous participation is between individuals with lived experience with mental health situations, PTSD, depression, grief, and/or suicidal and self harm tendancies or thoughts.  Please feel free to visit the group at ChatSuicide.org and join in the support community. 

THERE IS NO OTHER KNOWN PEER-TO-PEER SITE LIKE THIS!
