The “Live” Initiative

Children in foster care face a number of mental health challenges that others do not. A history of trauma, ever-changing living situations and inadequate access to mental health services are just a few of the factors that put them at greater risk of developing mental illness.

As a result, they’re also more likely to have considered suicide. In one study, children in foster care were almost three times more likely to have considered suicide and almost four times more likely to have attempted suicide than children who have never been in foster care.

The Live Initiative began with a song by Michael Anthony Curtis and Doug Stokes and a passion for speaking to the hurting and hopeless who may be contemplating ending their life. 

The song speaks to the lies one tells themselves to justify such an act, and the truth that is this – It will get better and that there is hope…but you have to choose to live to see any of it.
