My husband Ben Higgs and I started The Rise Foundation in 2016 after losing some very close friends to suicide. Living with anxiety and depression myself, and Ben with type 2 Bi Polar, we had to learn how to manage life with these not often talked about illnesses. Through this we decided we needed to make a change and help educate others and begin the important and sometimes difficult conversations.
