Over the past few months, the YSFlight Thunderbirds team, as a family, have been affected by substantial and quite severe anxiety and depression-related disorders. It was not until recently when these issues ambushed members of the YSFlight Thunderbirds family that we really began to understand the severity and intense pain and hopelessness that these mental disorders can generate. From the inability to socialize, attend classes, perform your job, or even leave your home. These anxiety and depression-related disorders can turn your life completely upside down in a matter of 24 hours.
As of the date of this post, over 40 million adults in the United States suffer from anxiety-related disorders, every year. Although anxiety and depression can not always be fully cured and resolved, there are many treatments available to provide support to people in need. Although these disorders are highly treatable, only 39.6% of those suffering from severe cases receive treatment.
With that being said, we hope you now are aware of the severity and the scale that this unimaginable pain can bring upon people. That's why the YSFlight Thunderbirds would like to dedicate their upcoming YSFlight Evansville Airshow performance to those suffering from these illnesses and would like to donate to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. For every viewer of the FREE livestream of the YSTB performance on September 14th, the YSFlight Thunderbirds will donate $10 to help financially support and provide treatment to those in need. This is a hefty amount per viewer and we need YOUR help to share this event to raise awareness, donate to, and fly in support of those currently suffering from anxiety and depression-related disorders.
