Mission Monday ~ BCC Evolution

At BCC Evolution they believe our world is in a mental health crisis. And they are working to do something about it! Their mission is to empower people to speak out and get educated about mental health and suicide, so that we have an army of everyday people that can assist those in need.

Founder and Executive Director, Kelli Hansen, was inspired to start BCC Evolution following the death of her sister by suicide in 2018. Kelli believes that education and awareness will help to reduce the stigma related to mental health, and in turn it will save lives. Through a variety of classes and programs, Kelli and her team provide tools and understanding that help with responding to mental health challenges. 

The vision for BCC Evolution is to expand throughout the country and beyond, in order to drive significant impact with this crucial issue. Like many nonprofit organizations, funding is the biggest obstacle that Kelli and her team face as they strive to scale up. They are starting the grant process, and have held a few events. If you would like to support this cause you can help “make mental health matter” by going here.

When asked what she wished people knew about BCC Evolution, Kelli replied that she wishes more people wanted to take steps towards caring for their mental health. Based on that desire, it makes sense that this agency was named for Kelli’s sister. BCC stands for Because Carrie Cared. Email Kelli if you would like to get involved or learn more.
