Kevin’s Song

Give Detroit - A Charitable Registry

Kevin Francis Urso was loved and respected for his quick wit, his intelligence, his sense of humor and his caring nature. He also loved music so much so that many of his major life experiences were identified and even defined by specific songs or artists. Sadly, Kevin also dealt with depression. On March 23, 2013, at the age of 41, Kevin ended his life at his home in Florida. He will be forever remembered and missed. Following his death, his parents, John and Gail Urso, founded Kevin’s Song - in honor of Kevin and to give voice to his memory.

 

// MISSION

Kevin’s Song is dedicated to generating public awareness about the causes of suicide, its prevalence in our society, and possible preventive measures. We are creating a working community of professionals and advocates offering knowledge, hope, and healing to individuals, families, and communities touched by suicide.


// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED

Kevin’s Song is a central hub: the place where people can come to find resources and learn about organizations that are helping us understand the causes of suicide as well as effective methods of preventing it.

Through conferences, a documentary film, and our website, Kevin’s Song provides up-todate information on the impacts of suicide and helpful resources to keep our community safer and welcoming for both those who are at-risk and their loved ones.

We have partnered with local mental health professionals to bring innovation to the care and treatment of individuals haunted by the desire to self-harm.

We are becoming a sustaining presence in the suicide education and prevention community by actively working with other suicide prevention organizations to increase awareness and help eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness.
