Ribbon Cutting : Building Bridges for Brianna
Building Bridges for Brianna .
We are holding our grand opening and open house for our office. The office has been able to happen due to donations from the community so we can offer free and reduced mental health counseling and therapy. Following the ribbon cutting we will have beverages and food provided so we can
network and learn more about the resources provided.
Thursday, December 3, 2020, at fifteen years old, Brianna Dorgan tragically took her own life. Matt, her father, and John, her brother, were in the house at the time. They heard the noise but didn't know what it was until they checked it out. Brianna gave no indication of what she was going to do that day. That morning, she was upbeat and interacting with them the way she normally would. Prior to this day, her father has been fighting the battle alongside Brianna as she was fighting her inner demons and dealing with prior trauma.
Since that horrible day in December Matt has decided to help others and Build the Bridge between people that need help and the people that can give help. Building Bridges for Brianna has expanded to pay co-pays for therapy/ counseling, medication, and coping skills. Matt has also used the organization to expand education in the community to break the stigma around mental health and train others in detection and education around warning signsBuilding Bridges for Brianna
