Our Mission is to break the grip of emotional isolation that is killing our young people.
Pam and Phil Martin established RADical Hope in honor of their son, Chris, who died by suicide in the Fall of 2017. Like many young people today, Chris experienced periods of profound emotional isolation and lacked the proper opportunities to express his struggles. Where mental health programs do exist, there is no universal standard to measure which interventions are most effective. Chris’s experience is at the core of the RADical Hope mission. We are committed to changing this landscape.
