A MENTAL HEALTH INITIATIVE
CHANGING THE NARRATIVE
Mental health, substance abuse, and addiction are issues that are impacting millions. Each year more people are struggling, and we are losing lives at an alarming rate. When we say our goal is to change the narrative, we are not claiming to have all of the answers. What we do want to accomplish is to:
End the stigma around these issues.
Start the conversation with those who are struggling or have struggled, those who have lost loved ones, and those who are working in the mental health, substance abuse, and addiction fields.
Build a collective of resources and find alternative solutions to work toward a better future.
1 if 5 Americans will experience a mental health condition in a given year.
Over 100,000 Americans died of drug overdose, including fentanyl poisoning in 2021
12+ Million Americans have had serious thoughts of suicide.
1 in 12 Americans have a substance use disorder.
The Living Undeterred Tour
The Living Undeterred Tour is a mental health initiative started by founder of Choices Network, Ltd. Jeff Johnston and his family. For 95 days, Jeff and his team will be traveling in an RV across the United States.
After losing his oldest son, Seth, to fentanyl poisoning in 2016, and later his wife, Prudence, to alcoholism in 2021, Jeff has dedicated his life to making a difference in the mental health and substance abuse space.
We are losing lives at an alarming rate, and it is time for something to change. Partnering with other non-profits throughout the country, the Living Undeterred Tour aims to raise awareness for mental health and substance abuse, end the stigma surrounding these issues, and begin to build new ideas for how we can end these epidemics.
