Transforming Lives:

From mental illness to mental wellness.

Gr8ter empowers people

to overcome mental health struggles in order to live the happy and fulfilling lives they desire.

What it Means to be Gr8ter

Gr8ter empowers adults and youth to move past shame and step forward into the life they desire.  If you’ve found yourself in a struggle, practicing these four steps will lead you to be Gr8ter than your highs and lows.

1

Hold on to Hope

Believe that you CAN and DESERVE to have a joy-filled, successful, and rewarding life. We’ve done it and we know it’s possible for you, too. If you’re in a place that feels hopeless right now, that’s okay, we’ll hold the hope for you.

2

Commit to Stepping Forward

Keep trying! Don’t stop trying new things that may help you.  There are endless possibilities of modalities that may be what you need. This is an individual game and what works for one person may not work for someone else.

3

Be Open

Being open about what you’re going through is key getting passed the shame and other barriers that may be holding you back. Find someone you trust, such as a friend or family member, counselor, a support group, or a mental health hotline.

4

Help Others

Encourage and empower others to grow.  Share your journey and teach them these simple steps to success.

How are you taking your power back today?

It’ll be an epic day! Here’s what a fellow homeowner, Jen Schindele, had to say about last year’s event: “We had the best time last year – such positive energy, great people, and amazing views.”

Early bird pricing for Top of Tamarack expires on June 30th! Top of Tamarack is a mental health awareness and suicide prevention event on the last Saturday in September where participants bike, run, or hike up the mountain at Tamarack Resort.

According to Kelly Crockett, 2021 Queen of the Mountain, “Top of Tamarack was the ultimate test of endurance, but it was mostly an opportunity to push my own limits! I loved the format and what the race stood for. It wasn’t a race, but a chance for me to dig deep and see what I was capable of. I loved the energy and support of the race staff and everyone who participated. This is one of the most scenic and fun events I’ve run to date!”

Whether you want to prove to yourself that you are “mentally strong” or participate in honor of a loved one lost too soon, we hope to see you there! www.topoftamarack.com

Are you a mental health ally to the people around you, whether at work or your personal life?

“Research shows that someone you know — a colleague, a family member, a friend, a client, a board member, or even yourself — will experience a mental health challenge at some point in your life. Recognizing this possibility can arm yourself in advance to support the people in your life and contribute to creating a supportive workplace. Some of the most effective ways you can be a mental health ally are to talk one-on-one with colleagues who are struggling, use supportive language, educate yourself and colleagues about mental health, encourage group engagement, and create policies that help employees who need it. People with mental health challenges, no matter the severity, can thrive in the workplace and be valuable team members. Allies play an important role by helping to provide the empathy and compassion they need to overcome key challenges.”

This morning I counted them. There's already 24. Registration has just begun and already there are 24 names to be displayed along our memorial mile for Top of Tamarack. 24 people lost too soon. 24 people that didn't believe that they could escape the pain they were in.

I was there too. Not so long ago. Thinking it would never get better. Thinking that the good parts of me were gone. Thinking that I would never be who I once was. Those were lies.

Thank goodness I disabled my plan. Thank goodness I stepped forward and got the help I needed. Thank goodness I didn't let the darkness win. I would have missed so much.

You can come back from this. Please stay. Please hang on. You don't want to miss this.
