Acadia Hope Day 2024

Julia Hansen was a 15-year-old high school sophomore when she lost her two best friends to suicide. Deeply affected by such a tragedy, Julia and her mom created The Yellow Tulip Project (YTP), a youth-driven movement to break the silence surrounding mental illness, remove stigma, and remind those who may be struggling that there is help and hope out there.

On Sunday, May 19, YTP and Northern Light Acadia Hospital are teaming up to host Acadia Hope Day – a time for our community to come together for an afternoon of music, poetry, wellness activities, and hopeful testimonials around the importance of good mental health and normalizing the experience of mental health struggles. Do you have a story to share? A poem, song, or other message of hope? We’d love to hear from you!

To register as a participant (it’s free!), please sign up here by Wednesday, May 1. For more information about Acadia Hope Day, email Josh Westcoat, Community Health Coordinator, Northern Light Acadia Hospital at jwescoat@northernlight.org.

Hope happens. And we look forward to spreading your words of hope on Sunday, May 19 at Acadia Hospital. See you there!Yellow Tulip Project
