About Us

Every year, tens of thousands of teenagers struggle with thoughts of depression, deep sadness, isolation, suicide, stress and the feeling of helplessness. Sadly, and too often, the parents of these teens are the last to learn this, and sometimes too late to take action.

However, today, there are so many terrific resources in formats that teenagers can understand, to help them in multiple ways with these issues, while still allowing teens to retain their privacy and dignity.

From our interactive and engaging Teen Talent Showcase, social media pages, monthly newsletter, and Mental Wellness blog, our mental health resources are designed to reach teens and young adults through several formats in both digital and live channels.

A Letter from Elliot Kallen

A Brighter Day, the 501(c)(3) Charity which Unites Stress and Depression Resources with Teenagers, will have reached thousands of teens in only our sixth year. Sadly, the motivation for this charity came from the suicide of my son, Jake, while attending the University of Montana in 2015. However, we are making a difference in the lives of teenagers and I have received many cards form teens thanking us for savings their lives.

Please don’t hesitate in contacting us to give your support. We have more than 100 teens come to each of our Annual Teen Talent Showcases in the Bay Area, in both virtual format and indoor and outdoor venues. We hand out to every teen a backpack filled with articles and resources on Stress and Depression for Teens.

We have many donors and supporters now, and that is growing every day. We are always looking for more participation, and hope you can help in furthering our cause. There are many ways to have a super day with A Brighter Day.

Thank you for your support.

Elliot H. Kallen
