Mission Statement

Find Your Anchor (FYA) is a grassroots movement aimed at suicide prevention, awareness, and education. With creativity and a personal touch, FYA aims to support those who may be struggling and de-stigmatize conversations surrounding suicide and mental health.

Description

At the heart of Find Your Anchor’s mission is a small blue box. Once referred to as a "mental health first aid kit," each box is packed with good vibes and materials designed to inspire, soothe, and offer support. This includes a "52+ Reasons to Live" deck of cards, an infographic on depression, a list of resources, posters, stickers, a bracelet, and a letter. The boxes are intended to be organic in the sense that each person can add their own anchors and inspiration to the box before passing it along. Our boxes are in 40+ countries and have been requested by thousands of people.

Impact - These testimonials say it all:

- "I just wanted to let you know that you saved a life today."

- "Find Your Anchor really stands out in its extremely personal connections it creates and its strong network of individuals who know that depression doesn’t have to be fought alone." (Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation)

- "I just wanted to let you know that I received one of your boxes from a dear friend of mine a few weeks ago. I thought about killing myself that day and when I got the box, I completely second guessed it. I’m now seeking help and getting the help I need. Thank you so much."

- "Yesterday, I opened my mailbox and found a package in there from you. From the deep, depths of my heart, I thank you. You've saved a life."
