Our Mission — Suicide Education, Prevention And Healing

Kevin’s Song is a charitable organization dedicated to generating public awareness about the causes of suicide, its prevalence in our society and possible preventive measures. As an organization, we are creating a working community of professionals and advocates that is rapidly being recognized as the go-to resource in the metropolitan Detroit area for offering knowledge, hope and healing to individuals, families and communities touched by suicide. This includes suicide related to mental illness, recreational and prescription substance abuse and life-event triggers.

In order to have a more unified voice to advocate for changes and initiatives that will promote suicide education, training and prevention, Kevin’s Song has launched a collaborative initiative, With One Voice. Kevin’s Song will facilitate an assembly of local, statewide and national suicide prevention groups and regional coalitions, along with mental health providers and community mental health organizations, in order to explore how together they can more effectively promote meaningful change.

This project will kick off with a day-long meeting which will begin with a discussion of each organization’s strengths, mission, activities and geographic coverage. The groups will then work to strategically identify specific and measurable goals and how to best share their resources to effectuate needed change. If these organizations can speak and work together With One Voice, business and community leaders and policy makers will understand that there is a unified and organized coalition of suicide prevention and mental health advocacy organizations – representing common interests across the State of Michigan – working together to effectuate meaningful change.
