1N5 is not just another catchy name it is a shocking statistic. 1 in 5 young people live with a diagnosable mental illness. After losing her husband to suicide in 2008, Nancy Eigel-Miller experienced stigma in her own community.
This moved her to leave her marketing career and join the Board of Directors of 1N5 to change the conversation about mental health, focusing on teen mental health issues and suicide. Since then Nancy has grown the program to 12 high schools and five universities, reaching over 87,000 young people in 2017. 1N5 hosts the annual Warrior Run marathon, and Nancy has raised over $765,000 to date.
All proceeds go to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital’s suicide prevention program and participating schools.
