BCC Evolution is a collaborative effort to create a movement that is ever evolving. BCC stand for "Because Carrie Cared". BCC also reflects on the theory behind Blind Carbon Copy emails, a persons name is on the "bcc" line and they don't know who else's name is there. It is hidden and that is how we think about Mental Health conditions, they are there, but you may not know they are there. Our goal is to figure out how to get the hidden names listed on the "bcc" line to the "to" line to open the conversation and bring light to each person as an individual to show that they are not alone. You can't always see a mental health condition or know how to address it until it's too late and we lose a life to the act of suicide.
Everyone has been touched by suicide, mental illness or the loss of someone close to them. According to the CDC: 1 in 5 adults experience a mental illness in a given year and suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for individuals ages 10-34. However 5 in 5 of us have mental health.
It's time to bring light to the epidemic of suicide, break the silence and stigma of mental health. This page is designed for our community of people that have been left behind, have attempted or need resources to help their loved ones. Also a place to see the faces, names and stories of those that are ready to speak up and honor the lives of those lost or honor themselves for the journey they have survived. We have resources, education, programs, volunteering events, collaboration and mental health class offerings to help save more lives.
BCC Evolution is a movement...
A place for survivors
A place for warriors
A place for those left behind
You're not alone!!!
