Talking, Understanding, Growing, Supporting

Who We Are


TUGS is a nonprofit community organization founded in 2013 with a singular mission: to address the stigma surrounding mental health challenges and suicide, particularly among those members of our society who find it most difficult to accept and express their very real personal struggles and professional frustrations. We work directly with individuals and in partnership with other community groups to promote both mental health awareness and suicide prevention.

If you are struggling, please don’t hesitate to get help. It’s okay to not be okay.

To speak to someone right now, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. Crisis counselors are available 24/7, and this service is always free and confidential.
