Community Engagement

Invite DeeDee’s Cry to have a table at your event. Engaging the community in suicide prevention, mental health & suicide loss conversations and resources is what DeeDee’s Cry loves to do.

Changemaker: Toy Burton

Although there has been increasing awareness of the importance of mental health in recent years, communities of color have often felt excluded from the conversation. The negative impacts of racism and systemic oppression, on top of a pandemic that has disproportionately harmed people of color, have left marginalized communities in need of resources for improving their mental health and overall wellness. But mental health resources and awareness campaigns are too often inaccessible or culturally inappropriate.


DeeDee's Cry team is Small but Mighty. Each member of the team brings a unique set of skills and backgrounds that assist us in our mission to provide resources on suicide prevention and loss & mental health education.
