Get In Touch For Hutch
Stigma is discriminatory. It generates feelings of judgment, is an insult to one’s character and is most often the reason why people do not reach out for the help that they need. Since Steven’s passing, #GetInTouchForHutch has been working diligently to break down the walls of Stigma that are so heavily attached to Mental Illness.
On February 10th, 2013, we experienced an extremely deep and personal loss of our son, friend, brother, and teammate Steven Hutchison. Steven took his own life. Through the experience of our devastating loss, we knew that we had to find a way to stop this from happening to others. As a result, an initiative was planned to encourage those who may be struggling to find their voice again. For them to realize that there are others who are experiencing what they are going through, and that there will always be someone there to reach out to for support. You are Never Alone!
