THE REASON FOR ELEVATION SOCIETY'S EXISTENCE:
TO BUILD A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE NO LONGER SEE SUICIDE AS THEIR ONLY OPTION.

Curate and grow a community that enhances protective factors (connectedness, purpose, etc.) in addition to increasing mental wellness practices as a society standard. Focusing primarily on community-building events, and content.
Invest into research - Invest time, money, and additional resources into suicide prevention research. Partner with other organizations and companies to learn more about how we are able to increase our effectiveness and decrease the rising rates.
Here are a few ways we plan on doing so:
