Miles Hall 1996- 2019
The Miles Hall Foundation promotes initiatives that will save lives and will protect those impacted by mental illness. We believe in taking action with urgency in order to raise public awareness about mental illness and to bring about necessary change. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make measurable differences in the lives of those impacted by mental illness.
“I found out that you have to be a danger to self or a danger to others to get help. Preventative help was literally impossible to find.”
If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts or mental health matters, please call or text 9-8-8 to reach the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline to connect with a trained counselor or visit the Lifeline site.
WHAT WE DO
The Miles Hall Foundation is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before. We are working on many exciting projects to help improve the lives of others, and are very proud of the progress we continue to make.
Supporting new laws and creating changes to local and national policies and laws that impact families, communities and people living with mental health challenges and facing racial injustices.
Changing how support is provided to families impacted by mental illness and serving as a resource to families before, during and after crisis events.
Helping students create anti-racist, safe and inclusive learning environments where all students are valued and where systemic racism, individual biases and mental health stigmas are challenged and eliminated.
Saving lives by changing policies that allow the use of excessive and lethal force by law enforcement responding to mental health crisis events.
REMEMBERING OUR LOVED ONES
The Miles Hall Foundation, with help from members of the community, purchased benches and tables and worked together to transform a small park near where Miles lived, to remember Miles, Andrew King, and Aisha Horley and other loved ones who left us too soon.
The park in Walnut Creek has now been renamed "Remembrance Park" and is a place of reflection and remembrance for many. Many people have sponsored a custom memorial brick which have been placed in the park for a loved one. Future opportunities to add more memorials are being planned.
We will have pizza and cupcakes at the park on Tuesday February 15, 2023 to honor Miles' 27th birthday and dedicate the 24 new bricks recently added. If you're in the area, please join us.
When: Wednesday, February 15 at 5 PM
Where: Remembrance Park Walnut Creek between Lancaster & Lilac
