OUR MISSION

The Alive Movement is a nonprofit organization focused on preventing teen suicide. With your support we also hope to pay for professional therapist to lead group therapy sessions across Utah, and provide support lines via blog sites, social media groups, and hotlines to live representatives.

 

 

PROJECTS

Group Therapy - We will be doing group therapy sessions twice a month lead by professional therapists. All youth 12-18 are welcome to attend. In the future we hope to have enough therapist to have one-on-one therapy as needed at the group therapy sessions.

Music videos  - “Fight For You” Fight for you is a music video created by Jade Dansie showing the effects social stigmas have on our youth. We need to stick together and love more.

Our Founders Story 

The Alive Movement was founded by Twenty Year -old Jade Dansie. Jade, a two-time suicide attempt survivor has devoted her life to helping save the lives of the youth who are at risk for suicide. Jade is nineteen years old from Saratoga Springs, Utah. Jade founded this nonprofit with the focus to prevent teen suicide by offering help and support to struggling teens throughout the state, and hopefully one day, throughout the entire nation. This cause is very near to her own heart. As a child, she multiple forms of abuse, which had a great impact on herself esteem and ability to handle certain problems that arose in her life. In her teens, she developed severe depression, which eventually led to an attempt at suicide. Fortunately, she was able to receive help. She checked into a professional treatment center for mental health in 2015, where she learned what caused her depression, and how to deal with the symptoms. Through proper treatment, she was able to develop a more stable foundation, and a positive plan for her future. Her goal and purpose in life is to help young people who are struggling; to give hope and support to those who feel overwhelmed, and help them realize how beautiful it is to be ALIVE. .
