The Bringing Happy Back Foundation

The Bringing Happy Back Foundation (BHB) launched in 2016 following the tragic loss of our founder's father to suicide. BHB's mission is to create events/campaigns to promote open dialogue about mental health and reverence for life. Our intent is to prevent other families from enduring the same pain, while reminding the world that life truly is worth fighting for.

You just can't quit.

Our inaugural event, The Bringing Happy Back Experience, took place January 31, 2019 - live from Las Vegas. The inspiring concert was also streamed globally to over 300 colleges, first responder units, military, veterans and mental health facilities. 2020 commenced with a community concert in Ashland, Oregon and will be followed by a full month of pledge campaigns in September, Bringing Happy Holidays Back events in December and a bigger and better televised concert/experience in January 2021.

With the uncertainty and fear that has plagued the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic, our work has become even more necessary than ever. Our team is amping up efforts to provide free online counseling for anyone struggling. Now, more than ever, we all need to lean on each other and speak openly to combat the stigma and surging suicide rates.

We can do this.

BHB Pledge

We are here to bring happy back…  YOUR happy back…

The team at Bringing Happy Back (BHB) is 100% dedicated to supporting individuals around the world to create their best and most joyful life possible.

We CAN’T do it for you though. It is an inside job.

We CAN, however provide encouragement, tools, resources and unwavering support. But first you must make a commitment to yourself to do everything within your power to care for your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.  You can do it!

Make the commitment to yourself and as an extra dose of accountability, share it with your friends, family and social network. Together, we can shift the stigma surrounding depression, hopelessness and suicide.


Commit today and say, “YES!” to your life –  Take the Pledge.



Next,  openly declare your commitment to your life and challenge others to do the same. Text, post, share… let’s join forces and start saving lives! 

example: I just took the Bringing Happy Back Pledge. I am fully committed to living a healthy, vibrant and successful life. I know some times will be harder than others and understand that I may need to reach out for support at times. I will also make myself available to you, should you ever need me. I challenge you to take the pledge too. We are stronger together. #myBHBpledge  www.bringinghappyback.org/pledge



Hopelessness, depression and suicide are plaguing children, adolescents and adults globally. We absolutely need to get the message to them that they are not alone and that it is okay to not be okay. Support is available and happiness does return. You just can’t quit!

Please consider helping us help others.

Contributions make it possible for us to create more uplifting and impactful events nationwide. We have great plans to take our message of hope to college campuses, schools, veteran facilities and military units. By utilizing entertainment, art and education, we intend to raise vibes and save lives – worldwide!

Your support is deeply appreciated.
