On October 1, 2023, our 17-year-old son Deegan lost a battle with depression we didn’t even know he was fighting.  Immediately, we knew that we needed to find a way to end the stigma that surrounds mental health. Together with his brother, we’ve started The Deegan Project in his memory, with the hope of raising awareness for mental health, and helping teens to see the hope in tomorrow.

ABOUT THE DEEGAN PROJECT

how we got here…

When my husband and I arrived to the spot where first responders had closed the road, many of our friends and family had already gathered there. When a fire-fighter spoke the words, telling us that our son was gone, my husband and I clung together as our world fell apart.
