PWA in the Media



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.

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. 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.  Visit ChatSuicide.org to join the support group community.

Advisory Committee  

Expanding and Growing - Our New Team:

In 2014, Pick With Austin implemented a Board of Director's Advisory Committee.  This Committee, which includes several licensed therapists, acts as a driving force in the continual growth of our organization and in order that we can continue to provide, and expand upon, our Suicide Prevention Programs.  We are very excited about the talented and skilled professionals who are a part of our decision making team!
