2019 Big Voice Honorees
Young people who give voice and hope to those who are facing mental health challenges
"You're not the only one who has this problem, other kids have this problem. By working together, you can get through it."
Suicide is the second leading cause of death for teenagers aged 10-17. In response to the growing epidemic of youth suicide, a group of young people participated in a statewide campaign and series of public service announcements to prevent suicide. These brave teenagers are raising awareness by sharing their experiences with depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges. As voices of hope, these youth play an important role in prevention by sharing warning signs with parents and teachers and reducing stigma.
Barbara "Bobbi" Cleveland
Executive Director, The Tull Charitable Foundation
For more than 40 years, Bobbi Cleveland has made the lives of Georgia's children better. First as a social worker, and now as the Executive Director for The Tull Charitable Foundation where she supports Georgia-based non-profit organizations to serve thousands of our most vulnerable families. With her belief that anything is possible, Bobbi encourages out-of-the-box thinking, which has transformed the landscape of the systems that lead to improved child well-being in our state.
A leader in the philanthropic community, Bobbi has spearheaded countless initiatives that address the needs of at-risk children and families, including launching and serving on the Executive Committee of the Family Connection Partnership, a statewide organization that supports the work of 159 local Family Connection Collaboratives, as well as serving as a founding board member of Voices for Georgia's Children, The Atlanta Education Fund, EMBRACE (The Foster Family Foundation of Georgia), and, most recently, Partners for Home, Inc.
Realizing that children benefit when we are strategic in our priorities, Bobbi founded the Philanthropic Collaborative for Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health and the Policy Committee of the Georgia Grantmakers Alliance, further demonstrating her ability to galvanize the advocacy community to action.
