About the Founder
Emma White, CEO & Founder
Founder Emma White developed suicidal depression at the age of 15 due to bullying and harassment at school and on social media. With family, friends and professional help, Emma overcame her struggles and lives to tell her story to help encourage others that life is worth the heartbreaks, uncertainty and struggles- that ultimately, life is worth it.

About the L.I.V.E. Model Workshop
Built upon the #ItsNotOKbutItWillBe self-help book, LifeisWorthIt.org provides in person and virtual workshops for schools and athletic/club organizations.
What does the workshop look like?
The workshop is based on the four-part L.I.V.E. Model, created by our team, backed with psychology and mixed with real life experience. The workshop guides teens through a 4-step process to recognizing their emotions, connecting to help, recognizing their worth and living the life made for them. We do not act as therapists, rather, we give real resources and provide an emotionally safe space for youths to ask questions and have open conversations. By doing this, we help destigmatize mental health.
