Mike's community has shown him a lot of love, and he loves to pay it forward and show his community love right back. When he was being hard on himself, it was the people around him who lifted him back up and reminded him of what he can accomplish. Now, he provides food and support to unhoused people in his neighborhood. With help from his community, doors keep opening for Mike, and he's so excited about all the opportunities the future has in store for him.

No matter where you are, support is always available. The Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) offers 24/7 free and confidential assistance from trained counselors in both English and Spanish.
