Volunteer

There is nothing more rewarding than giving back! By volunteering with Please Live, you can help us make a lasting impact on teenagers in Central Pennsylvania.

Educate

We believe most fears associated with mental health are due to not being educated. Find resources here for yourself, a friend, or your child. Being educated means being prepared for the twists and turns life can throw at you or a loved one.
