Welcome to SPN Survivors!

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that engages and equips communities to strengthen mental health and prevent suicide among teens and young adults. Our vision is to see fewer young people in crisis so we reach out and START the conversation about how to build a foundation of quality mental health that provides the tools and resources to #TakeCareofYou – mind, body and spirit. We work with educators, parents, students and mental health professionals in local communities AND nationally at comic, pop culture and fandom themed events.

Did You Know . . .

20% of children have a mental health disorder and only 20% of those get the help they need


Did you know that 50% of all mental health disorders develop by the age of 14, when a young person is starting high school? And that 75% of all mental illness develops by the age of 24?

Mental health disorders do not discriminate and affect every school and every neighborhood across the country. The good news is that mental illness is a health disorder that IS treatable. Education and awareness are essential in early detection, seeking help and realizing “You are NOT alone!”

Do You Know Me?

Jared - web

SPN Survivors is looking for the young Supernatural fan who attended ChiCon 2013 and asked Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles about suicide at the end of their panel. That moment forever changed our lives and an open letter has been written to her in hopes that she will contact us. If you know who this person is, please let her (or her family) know we would love to talk to her. Thank you!
