Eva Pohler hopes to raise awareness of mental health and suicide issues among young adults with The Purgatorium Series and this campaign. The blog tour will begin on June 8th and end on June 22nd. On June 23rd, the total amount raised and winners will be announced on Eva Pohler's website at http://www.evapohler.com.
Her goal is to raise $500 to support the programming of Active Minds, which provides invaluable resources and education to thousands of students on more than 400 campuses across the country. Active Minds creates an environment where open dialogue about mental health is encouraged and stigma does not exist. It creates a space where students can come together to prioritize their mental health and find the help they need.
During this campaign, The Purgatorium (#1) can be downloaded for free where all ebooks are sold. It tells the story of an uninhabited island off the coast of California where Dr. Hortense Gray and her staff use experimental therapy to help clinically depressed and suicidal patients overcome their desire to die by replacing it with a will to live.
The Purgatorium can be downloaded at http://www.amazon.com/Purgatorium-Book-One-ebook/dp/B00HCH2D86/ref=la_B009D0TAZ4_1_8_title_0_main?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1399504922&sr=1-8
