Since the suicide of his wife Kristin in April 1998, KBHC Founder Reese Butler has been on a personal crusade. His mission the past 11 years has been to offer HOPE and the option to LIVE to those in the deepest emotional pain. The means to that end:

•The sharing of Kristin’s story,, in an effort to offer
HOPE and the message that depression is treatable and suicide is preventable.

• In 1998, the launching of the Kristin Brooks Hope Center and its primary program, the National Hopeline Network 1-800-SUICIDE. Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher dedicated this national crisis hotline network in May 1999. It connects people who are depressed or suicidal — or those who are concerned about someone they love — automatically to a CONTACT USA or 
AAS certified crisis center.
