We believe music can help healing, and for the second year in a row we are organizing a virtual fundraiser event to help prevent suicide.
100% of your donations benefit Elyssa’s Mission, a Northbrook-based organization that fully funds suicide prevention in over 300 Chicagoland schools. Elyssa’s Mission® provides hands-on support to area public and private schools in order to educate students, staff, parents and guardians on how to recognize and assist those teens most at-risk. They have helped educate over one million students, staff and parents since inception.
Last year alone they educated 36,851 students, linked 1,049 to mental health services and hospitalized 16 students.
COVID has provoked a huge spike in mental illness. Suicide rates are at an all-time high. We must join together and act now so that we can save young lives.
Your gift helps provide resources and supportive services to help prevent teen suicide.

Mental health awareness means that we’re not only acknowledging that mental health is important, but we’re talking about it, putting it out there so that people who need help, can get help.
Elyssa’s Mission® provides resources to help prevent teen suicide. The community-based organization was founded in 2006 in honor of Elyssa, a bright, gifted and outgoing Chicagoland girl who bravely battled post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. Elyssa’s Mission ® provides hands-on support to area public and private schools and community organizations in order to educate students, staff and parents on how to recognize and assist those teens most at risk. Elyssa’s Mission has helped educate over 500,000 students since inception.
