In Chase's Memory

Chase Bjork was a beautiful boy who ultimately died from his mental illness. Despite his best efforts, he was unable to overcome the power of his hidden disease. In his memory, the Bjork family and Concord community established the Chase Bjork Foundation to educate families on mental illness and get more adolescents the treatment they need and deserve, pre-crisis.

Yet, the terms are, in our opinion, outdated and no longer reflect the data- and evidence-based understandings that researchers, psychiatrists and others in the field have come to accept over the past 10+ years.
