Our Mission

At Speak2Save, our mission is to heighten the importance of mental wellness and suicide prevention through empowered education.
 Silence, uncertainty, and discomfort cannot be a barrier when people are in vital need of help.
We as an organization, through our lively events and various forms of enhanced media, aggressively aim to tear down the stigma-wall of mental health conditions and suicide.
Allow knowledge, healing and hopeful rescue to be your outcome!

See What People Are Saying About Our Events

  • Hope Bridge validates the feeling one goes through after losing someone to suicide, and offered a sense of normalcy to my personal stages of grief.

    E. Reitenbach-Molina
  • We really appreciated the event that the Eaton’s created for us which included the film “Hope Bridge” and a panel discussion afterwards.  Our teens really connected to the message of the film and we had a great discussion during the panel talk.  It was a powerful night that helped to address a deeply serious topic. I would highly recommend this event to any and all groups who have been impacted by grief, depression, and suicide. Once again, thank you Christi and Dave for hosting this event at our church.  It was a great event!

  • Hope Bridge is a powerful, inspiring and life- altering movie. Attending a Speak2Save Hope Bridge Event offers hope, resources and encouragement that can’t be found anywhere else. Whether you struggle personally with mental health issues, know someone who does or just want to acquire more knowledge, you are sure to find it there!

    L. Ensor
  • For me, Hope Bridge is an emotionally cleansing film. Even though it brought back tears remembering my son’s suicide, it also gave me peace knowing that all my grief and struggles were acted out in this amazing film.

    B. Boiano
  • The Hope Bridge Movement, an engaging and entertaining way to bring depression, awareness and suicide prevention throughout your community.

    Jeff Elhart
    President at Elhart Dodge Nissan Automotive, Michigan
  • We thought it would be a good event, but it was an UNBELIEVABLE EVENT! If you’re thinking about any part of this event, just stop thinking and just do it. I guarantee you’ll be blessed!

    Pastor Shaun Blakeney
    Christ Fellowship Church, Florida
  • Hope Bridge Events provide the right atmosphere and the right time to have the spot-on conversation that is literally becoming vital to saving lives.

    Christine Eaton

  • Thank you does not do justice to what you have done for Zeeland and West Michigan! I have no doubt this movement will continue to spread conversations and education.
