for resources like Bee There.

Our founder

In 2010, my loved one had their first psychotic breakdown. They were a freshman in college and like many, experienced a serious episode during their first year of higher education. As a parent, I began a journey of trying desperately to find help. However, I did not know where to start other than seeking a psychiatrist who simply prescribed medication.

While this approach did lead to a full recovery, it was the beginning of a long and challenging journey navigating the complex web of resources and services available for mental health support.

    At Bee There, we believe that everyone has the right to access mental health and addiction recovery support when they need it. We are committed to breaking down barriers and providing resources that can make a difference in someone's life.
why we care

At Bee There, we strive to increase public consciousness about the reality of mental health crises. We see the urgent need for ongoing support for those afflicted by these conditions and their loved ones. A mental health crisis can 

be all-consuming, leaving individuals unsure of how to proceed beyond seeking immediate hospitalization and entering the long journey of treatment and recovery. We aim to change this narrative by offering an unbiased, non-commercial playbook and roadmap from the first day of the crisis, providing guidance for living with the condition.

Enhancing Existing Efforts

We do not intend to replace existing mental health awareness organizations. Instead, our goal is to complement their efforts and enhance their reach. We aim to build a Bee Hive community that facilitates conversation, research, education, and resource discovery. We operate transparently and without bias. Our approach aligns healing with spirituality and faith, upholding the belief that these principles can significantly contribute to recovery.

let's Bee There for each other,
because no one should have to
face mental health challenges

breaking the stigma

Mental health diseases and addiction are often stigmatized, causing individuals to feel ashamed or embarrassed. We strive to break the stigma surrounding mental health and create a safe and judgment-free environment for individuals seeking help. We believe everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their struggles. By breaking the stigma, we can create a more open and accepting community for those living with mental health issues.

Making a Difference Together

Bee There's mission is not just about connecting individuals with resources, but also about creating a movement towards better mental health care. We are dedicated to working together with our partners and supporters to make a real difference in the lives of those who are struggling. By coming together, we can make a positive impact on the mental health crisis and create a better future for all individuals and families affected by mental illness.
