About the Ed Lally Foundation
MISSION: Our mission is to advocate for a proactive approach to mental health & suicide prevention through accessible practices of meditation, mindfulness, authentic self-expression and community connection.
VISION: Our vision is to foster a world community connected through our shared experiences of inner struggle, forged through awareness and united through compassion.
As a family, we walked hand in hand with my beloved father Ed Lally as he suffered through multiple bouts of clinical depression - the last of which culminated in suicide. Through my Dad’s journey, as well as our own personal experiences, we know first-hand the pain and isolation of depression and anxiety.
Since his passing, we’ve also come to know the profound healing born out of proactive approach to mental health. Through the Ed Lally Foundation, we endeavor to share the research-based practices of self-awareness and self-expression that have helped us to find healing; practices that improve our ability to cope with, navigate and heal from experiences of depression and anxiety; practices that foster our recognition that we are are not alone in our mental-emotional struggles, and that together, we have the power to heal.
We welcome you to join us online or in-person at any of our classes, events or experiences, and we encourage you to come as you are - anxious, stressed, depressed or at ease. We promise to meet you with an open heart and an open mind.
