Common Ground For Common Good: The Alex Project

North Valley Community Foundation

Dan Strauss started the Alex Project, which spreads the word about help for anyone in crisis — but especially teens. Alex was 17 when he died by suicide. He was Dan's son.

The Alex Project's goal is that no one die simply because he or she can't find someone to talk to. And for many young people, it's easier to reach out via text. The project spreads the word about how easy it is to connect with suicide prevention resources.

If you or anyone you know is in crisis, or just need to talk to someone, text "Listen" to 741741 — the numbers on the left side of the phone — and talk to someone from Crisis Text Line 24/7.
