Michael’s Giving H.A.N.D.

Company description: “Suicide is the second leading cause of death for those 10-34 years of age and the 12th leading cause of death overall in the United States. What’s more, four out of five teens that attempt suicide have given clear warning signs. Many of these signs — and the signs of mental illness — are missed or misunderstood by parents, educators, and even the teens themselves.

At Michael’s Giving H.A.N.D. (MGH) these statistics hit close to home. Our namesake, Michael Donatucci, died by suicide in 2016 after suffering silently with anxiety and depression for years. After this devastating loss, MGH has made it our mission to spread awareness to help teens, teachers, and parents learn the signs of mental illness, navigate needed mental health resources, advocate for those with mental illness, accelerate the process of mental health evaluation, and eliminate the stigma of mental health.

With the support of our mental health partners – Temple Health and Drexel Medicine – we educate the Greater Philadelphia community on adolescent anxiety and depression, open lines of communication between families and teens, and dispel myths related to mental health through our Educational Outreach Program.
In addition, we help teens and their families navigate these illnesses through our Adolescent Mental Health Counseling Program in conjunction with Jefferson Health, we offer a no-cost mental health assessment consultation that provides a diagnosis and treatment plan so that teens (13-19 years old) struggling with mental illness can navigate the road to long-lasting health.

Through these two programs, we are able to bridge the gap that exists with most education-based, non-profit organizations, going beyond information to action to ensure no individual should suffer and family and friends never have to feel the loss of losing a loved one to suicide.”
